Donate the prize to someone else, who could use or need it then.
Aside form the wink, it's really not a bad idea ...

No the wink was me trying to be subtle, which as you know, I don't do well.

50 mm lens

Wow what a nice lens. I wonder how many shooters are using Pentax at the Olympics. A gold metal for Canadian Hockey and winning a 50 mm what a great week it would be. Go Canada Go

a 50 1.8 DA? Probably would give it a test run against the 50 1.4A I have.

The 1.8 is sharper wide open but harsher bokeh, no quick shift, no distance or dof markings.

Just picked up an A 50/1.4 ... would be an interesting shoot-off between it, my other two A 50's (F1.7 & f2), and the DA 50/1.8 ... good luck again to all. J

Agreed ... "never ending story" if I were to add in my M's (all 3), SuperTak's, off-brands, etc. ... and let's not get into 55's & 58's because they are a "close FL" to a 50mm! J

I'm at work, but I can explain it, complete with break points. You'll have to wait until I get everybody tucked in for the night. Unless someone else comes along with the full explanation.
Ok basically, just by posting 20 posts between 0001-2359 on Monday, you'll be guaranteed 20 points. (Only for posts in eligible forum sections. See the rules for the list.) After that 20th post, you can still post all you want. It won't count. Not unless you post stuff that somebody else finds useful or funny enough to "like". For every 1 like you receive (from unique users), up to 5 more of your posts will get added to your daily score. So, if you have 25 posts & 0 likes, your score would be 20. If you have 25 posts & 1 like, your score would be 26. See?

Here's your breaks:
20P = 20 points
25P + 1L = 26
30P + 2L = 32
35P + 3L = 38
40P + 4L = 44
45P + 5L = 50
50P + 6L = 56

And continue ad infinitum...

you really have to earn "likes", usually by being especially helpful and/or funny
Or posting photos

There seems to be a huge following here on the forum for multiple 50mm ownership.

I'm beginning to wonder if I'm doing it wrong by only owning one, yes... I hear some people screaming already "only one".

Fwiw, the mean average for the daily winner currently stands at 54.2. You can expect to need at least 50 posts & 5 likes to be a contender on Monday.

Why even have such a contest? Just give prizes to your top posters. You can't create quality content on demand. There has to be something to write about.
