This thread has far too few samples for as good a lens as this is.

This lens is a legend in my eyes. A full set of mine on Flickr devoted to it: Pentax-M SMC 50mm f/1.4 - a set on Flickr

And a quick example...

for those who uses this lens, you can take the lens out and turn it the other way round, you will get some really crazy macro with that.

I was fortunate enough to buy my copy of this lens from this fellow last fall.

My first outing with a reversing ring and the 50mm f:1.4. Yes, you CAN get quite close! I have had this lens for over 30 years and this was the first time I've ever tried such a thing. I was amazed, stunned and quite pleased!

Recently acquired the lens from my grandmother. It was my grandfather's, and he passed away in 1996, after being in hospital for a few years. So this lens has gone unused for 20 years, and is still absolutely brilliant. I have it mounted on my Canon Rebel T3/1100D using a cheap adapter.

My only problems have been at f/1.4 and in daylight where the highlights get massively blown out unfortunately, but at f/2.8 the lens is gorgeous.

All of the photos in this set are taken with the 50mm, with apertures ranging from f/1.4 to f/2.8. (most of them are either at 1.4 or 2.8) https://www.flickr.com/photos/bengoodwin/sets/72157647132589201/ - If you want to know which, look at the bokeh. If they are perfectly round then the photo is 1.4 (such as the 8-pointed star flower), if they have slight hexagon appearance, then its f/1.8-2.2 and if its a noticeable hexagon its f/2.8. All of the pictures in this set have been put through some post processing, so attached are some non-PP images straight from my camera.

I believe the pink flowers was at f/2.8, and 8-pointed star at f/1.4
