Wonderful the lens is stupendously sharp at 1.4 which is the main thing.

I am very happy with the natural look the lens produces. I am waiting for something like outside portraits without any accessories like flash etc.

Four Favorite Lenses

HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW. with Pentax K-1 is enough for me to survive another decade or so easily.

Right now I have three favorite lens but I know the upcoming HD FA21mm is going to be my fourth and final lens
HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW.
HD FA 150-450mm F4.5-5.6
SMC Pentax-D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro WR
D FA 21mm Limited

I am also going to have HD Pentax-D FA* 85mm F1.4 SDM AWbut I don't think it will ever be among my top four because not being professional photographer, it is hard for me to imagine using this lens other than taking portraits of my child.

HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW on my K-1. It fills all my needs. Vacation, birthdays, casual travel it’s just simply there. It’s the best lens I have ever used. I have SMC Pentax-D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro WR too but I won’t call it everyday lens.

So if I’m right there will be HD Ltd 21 f/3.5 (or something) & DFA*24mm f/1.4? If it’s true... it’s great ��

Absolutely! I am going to start saving from July & should be able to buy by Christmas. If lucky then probably around $1600-$1700. Costly but doable.

I don’t think it’s that expensive as some people are trying to make out.

Leica Q2 is $5,000. That’s what I’d call an expensive hobby. This one a squeeze for few weeks.

I can easily take spectacular portraits with HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm f/1.4 till he graduates from the college // again he’s just 21 months old // and really don’t need it either since I am a very fragile man as well...


But I’m still going to buy it & I am happy to be alive to buy it for my son.

I have a feeling... HD Pentax-D FA* 85mm F1.4 is going to be better than HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW. I am not MTF guy but this lens seems like ... something from the heavens.

We share lots of interests. Before our desired 3 lens collection matched... and now I’m buying this for my sonshine
K-1 + HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW

---------- Post added 05-31-20 at 04:57 PM ----------


Yes I figured. I even don’t know why price or equivalence is focus of this thread when we should be comparing it with G- master or Canon 85mm primes and where it beats them

I am simply glad HD Pentax-D FA* 85mm F1.4 SDM AW has been released. People always complain about the price whether it's $249 Samyang or $2,000 Pentax D FA*. I always wanted to have a quality lens similar to Nikon or Canon 85mm and finally my patience paid off... and I am having something which might last me. I keep looking at the samples and I am sure just like it's elder brother HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW it will make me go out and explore the world.

I don't care about the price even though it might squeeze me for few weeks but I am going to buy it by Christmas. I am going to buy this beautiful D*FA 85mm F1.4 primarily to shoot my son till he graduates from the college. And he is 21 months old right now. // Yes K-1, D*FA 50mm, & D*FA85mm will make my old age worth looking back.

Yes we certainly do. I wonít ask for anything once I have this set. Probably will add few quality filters for landscape etc.

K-1
1. HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW Cannot imagine my K-1 without it. If I lose it or break it I'd buy new one within a month. This lens is just so good that I don't care about the weight. Plus being a man I trust my masculinity.

2. HD Pentax-D FA* 85mm F1.4 SDM AW (When it is out): I have two kids and I want to take their pictures till they graduate from college with this lens on K-1 // Yes I am not going to buy any other camera and going to keep K-1 unless it is broken or stolen.

3. D FA 21mm Limited ED DC WR (When it is out): For my landscape needs

Since I am not into wildlife or macro photography. This set will remain with me for at least one whole decade.

Yes. I think that’s the best way of learning.

---------- Post added 04-28-20 at 06:08 PM ----------


I didnít know that. So itís good I bought that. I got it in mint condition with some warranty left for $300. I think it was a good decision now.

I will start using it more since summer is here & insects & children are out. I hope I’d have fun this summer.

Nice try wasp. Nay, let me shoot few wasps this summer before I make final decision. // pun intended

---------- Post added 04-28-20 at 02:44 PM ----------

Well, when I see images here, I feel gosh I have same set why itís not like that crisp & enchanting? Maybe itís post processing I need to focus more or photography itself. I bought online course of photography. Hopefully that will help
