Latest Review Posted Auto Sears 55mm F1.4
It's been my go-to lens ever since my 50mm 1.7 broke.

It's surprisingly weighty. If you're used to modern lenses, this lens will feel very heavy for its size.
The lens' surface is metal with matte finish, it matches K-5 so well. It's very beautiful to look at.

Sharpness is very good among lenses of similar FL and aperture.

I'm not too much of a fan of its focus ring, however. It's half teethed, and half smooth. Kinda like in a wave pattern. Maybe it's preferable to some, but definitely not for me. Doesn't affect IQ at all, but kind of bothersome.

Thanks to multi-coating, flare control is excellent even with a short 1" round hood I (temporarily) have.

I have a few 50mm-58mm f/1.4 - f/2 lenses, and this is my favorite non Pentax lens.
