pretty nice pictures before winter hits. No mention of camera or lenses used?
K-1 and DFA*50/1.4. They’re in the 50/1.4 thread. The links to the Flickr page seem to be broken. EXIF is there.
A few with other lenses at this link

Beautiful! Gosh I hope I win this lens. My wife will be just as happy since it would mean she still gets her new dresser.

Do not understand why the photos have disappeared so here again


STARBURST at F11



This Starburst-Effect is really great, razorsharp and really excellent from aperture F9 and higher.

BOKEH at F1.4



Soft an beautiful Bokeh, a really fast an accurate autofocus fully open at F1.4 - wow - Pentax, that´s really a great lens
Very nice to see the lens renders great starbursts! Now I want it even more. Concert coming up, stage side.

Maybe I'm crazy but I don't like the images made by this lens. They look lifeless, with almost no pop! Yes, sharpness, yes bokeh but... I see more life in da 55mm sdm, fa 50mm f1.7, helios 44, fa 31, 43, 77, etc. It seems that too many elements are in this lens, so you gain sharpness but that's all! I see this in many Sigma lenses with too many elements! I'm not necessarily talk about 3d pop, just some life in the images...Just a thought!

Those lenses are specifically designed to promote the central subject at the expense of softer edges - a classic film era style of lens design. Modern lenses are indeed sharper edge to edge, thus are somewhat ‘flat’ by comparison. As a matter of taste I prefer the older Pentax 50’s but I have and really like the D-FA* as well.

Yes, that flat image, that's what I think, too! Well, different kind of taste!
