Makes my kit lens feel like a flimsy piece of crap. Wow.

That is one nice piece of glass. Thanks, Gramama.

yes indeed. that is a seriously nice piece of work. Worth every penny... and less than other brands of 50mm f/1.4 too.

..agreed.

Add a tele-macroconverter to it and you have a 100mm f2.8 macro lens without the need to spend lots more ;)

Would this be the old style lens that doesn't "talk" to modern digital cameras?? I have the f1.7 version and am wondering if it is legal for challenges...Fantastic lens BTW...gotta love the shallow DOF...

Nope, brand new fully automatic! Pretty hot.

But any lens should be legal as long as it's on a digital camera - I don't think the SC cares if aperature data is recorded in EXIF...

I was taking pics last night outside by the light of a string of xmas lights ;)

I've used my M 50 1.7 for challenges several times... I don't see why it would be illegal.

And evan, congrats on the pickup! I hope we see it used in a challenge soon...

I was thinking of picking up the DA 50mm 1.4 and the 2x Tele-converter. Does anyone know where I can get the Pentax 2x Converter? Or, can I get another brand that will work just as good?
