The A 50/2.8 Macro is one of my two favorite macro lenses (along with the Tokina "Bokina"). The A 50/2.8 is very, very sharp, and, even if the F and FA 50/2.8's are very slightly sharper, the A 50/2.8 is ~SO~ much nicer to use, especially for its great manual focus "feel" (and AF doesn't make a whole lot of sense for a lot of macro shooting anyway). Finally, the A 50/2.8 Macro is compact enough to make a very portable macro lens (more so than the "Bokina"). What's not to like ?

I know that I'll regret selling this lens. It's been great and I've shot some of my best photos with it. This copy is a good one.
