I prefer this to my K 50/1.2 and use the Cosina far more often (the K rarely sees the light of day).

It produces a magic bokeh - if you like it.

How would you compare this lens to the K50/1.2 or A50/1.2 in terms of colour rendition, bokeh, solidity and smoothness of operation ?

Original Poster
The bokeh is a lot better with the Cosina (I own the A 50/1.2 and had earlier owned the K50/1.2 as well). I did not find any difference in color rendition. The Cosina's focus is very smooth (I presume that it is similar to some of the Zeiss lenses - had read a review of the Zeiss Planar lens where the reviewer found that it was in fact made by Cosina). Cosina has a good reputation for making high quality lenses.
