I never trusted myself to be able to make good use of that lens on a DSLR,
so I didn't get one until I had the K-01.
Along with its useable apertures below f/2,
the absence of mirror shake on the K-01
gives an awesome hand-held low-light combination.
You're making me want to try out my manual 1.4 SMC! The only problem is I learn my lenses so i don't have to look at the camera for specific shots... e.g. I can hold the camera and take it from my waste while getting the person to look up at my face (creates a "candid" looking shot I think)... Nonetheless, I'll try it out with the manual

For that technique, you'll probably need more depth of field
than you'll get with a fast fifty below f/2.8.
