I could not find any comparison between this and the older "FA 50mm/2.8 Macro" SMC Pentax-FA 50mm F2.8 Macro Reviews - FA Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Got mine last week for $244 from B&H and do not regret it. Fantastic deal!

I believe that optically this lens is similar to the FA lens, but the design/effectiveness of the clamp has been improved (plus you get lens corrections).

Thanks Adam!
I was looking for a test image (of the same subject) using those two lenses :-)

FA 50 2.8 Macro that I bought from a fellow member recently is very sharp wide open!

Caution: don't use these lenses to take portraits of middle aged people! No one wants to see their wrinkles on their photos with the clarity that they can count :-)
