Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-FA 50mm F1.7
A recent purchase, bought blind with a little trepidation as to condition. Big sigh of relief after receipt. It is hard to believe someone would sell this gem unless they had purchased something better and didn't use it any more. This is the best of the 50mm lenses I own, A or M 50mm F1.7. I have no Pentax F1.4 so it gets a 10. Looking at the results I believe it to be much better than my Canon 50mm F1.8 11 and my Minolta 50mm F1.7 though I am unable to compare them on the same body, the K-5 is my best and most expensive body purchase. I have a Nikon 50mm f1.8G coming so will have another AF 50mm to play with. Taken last evening with onboard flash, just put the camera on the ground and tilted it slightly. I wanted to get an image quickly without disturbing Mrs Tiggywinkle to much. The dried mealworms I put down had the effect of making the head look around even though I was only a few feet away. Slightly cropped. Should have stopped down more.
