Pentax F 50 1.7 - $149 @ Adorama
Posted By: Julie, 06-10-2012, 12:13 PM

Probably the best deal on an F/FA 50 1.7 that I've seen in awhile... they usually go for around $200-$250.

If you don't have a fast fifty yet and would like to have an autofocus one, you should give this one some consideration.

I recently got that exact deal locally on an F50/1.7 and I couldn't be happier.

If anyone else was interested, here's another one- but it's a little more. Still not a bad price.

looks like you can't mount a hood on that one. don't think I would shoot a 50 without a hood...

Whoops, I didn't even read the description, but you're right. I don't think I would either...

The F and FA 50 f/1.7 have a recessed front element - they don't need a hood nearly as badly as their f/1.4 coutnerparts.Plus, if you really want a hood or filter, it is possible to glue an empty filter ring into place. I have one like this, and it works quite well.
