Pentax-F 50mm 1.7

This lens has ruined me. Every other lens i own is not even close. Even the much touted Tamron 28-75.

Here are a couple of images from my F-50 1.7. All of these are taken with a Pentax K-x.

First one, ISO6400, f1.7, 1/100:


Second, ISO128000, f1.7, 1/50:


Third ISO3200, f2.8, 1/30:

Also, what are the differences between the F-50 and the FA-50?

My favourite new lens. I managed to snag it for $20 on Kijiji!

1/320s f2.8 iso100

Note that the focus is nailed on his left eye (right on our screen) but it's a bit behind his right eye (left on our screen)

After noise reduction and contrast adjust, this actually turned out to be a better astro shot:

I don't think the focus is completely dialed in, but it still looks pretty good. I like this one better, as the longer exposure had a bunch of stars shifted to red, and it had longish star trails. This shot has very minimal trails at 3sec, ISO3200, f1.7:

The first month with my F 50

I purchased this lens from a forum member less than a month ago to shoot my son's last Jr High basketball tournament of the year;

Exposure Time 1/180s (0.0056)
Aperture F/2.0
ISO Equivalent 800

Also took a shot at my first HighKey photo;

Exposure Time 1/180s (0.0056)
Aperture F/8.0
ISO Equivalent 400

A portrait of a friend's daughter;

Exposure Time 1/200s (0.0050)
Aperture F/4.0
ISO Equivalent 400

I had competition from an aspiring young photographer at the games;

Exposure Time 1/160s (0.0063)
Aperture F/2.8
ISO Equivalent 400


How can I not be happy with the results of this lens.
