Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-F 50mm F1.4
Excellent lens.

Every photographer should have a 50mm in his/her camera bag, and this one's a real gem!

Optically it's identical to the much more common FA 50mm, so in that field it is excellent.

Of course at 1.4 it won't be super sharp (show me such a fast lens that is...) but for portraits this is perfect.
From 2.0 and onwards it becomes razor sharp.

The bokeh is incredible. Creamy and soft.
The color redition is excellent aswell.

Build quality-wise it looks and feels a bit cheaper than the newer FA 50mm, but since they're optically identical, i could not care less.
