Archimedes, you have a typo in the second set of images:

"For comparison's sake, here's the DA 50mm f/1.8:

DA* 55m f/1.8 at f/1.8, DA* 55m f/1.8 at f/2.0, DA* 55m f/1.8 at f/2.8"

That threw me off when I scrolled up into it.

Thanks, fixed! I hadn't had coffee yet.

I have used the DA *55 on a K-1 for a little while now. I would say that at f1.4 the corners are really weak. At f2, it is usable. Most of what I have shot has been landscape and so I am stopped down a lot.

That's a heck of a shot, lovely!

All lenses are best stopped down ... I reckon f2 is great on the DA*55, with good bokeh, central sharpness and 3D background separation possibilities.
