DA*55 + K-1 (I'v made up my mind that this will be good enough for me, instead of little shorter new sibling)

I've thought about the DFA *50 too, but as with you, I'm pretty pleased with the 55. It doesn't have great corners wide open, but if I'm honest with myself, I don't shoot at f1.4 a whole lot anyway (maybe I would if I owned the DFA *50).

Nice shots!

Thanks! Yes, it has crossed my mind several times to get the 50, not just because of possibility of better 1.4 shooting, but also improved corners and general performance. But that is still a lot of money for that. I will buy that 85 thou. And think about that 50 after that. Or if my DA*55 suddenly would die. I like how it renders skin colour, and sharpness for portraits is really good IMO.
