    Pentax 50mm

    I am looking for a auto focus 50mm lens for my Pentax .I was looking at Sigma 50mm f1.4 EX DG HSM or Pentax smc FA 50mm 1:1.4 , does any one have these or experience with either ? Thoughts on how they find them .I currently have two Pentax 50mm 1.7 manual lenses which I love using but an auto focus prime would be a good addition .Maybe I should just save up for a Pentax smc DA* 55mm f/1.4 SDM ,going by the reviews its the ducks guts off 50 odd mm for the Pentax .

    i have both the FA50 1.4 and the DA* 55, both are excellent, but the 55 really is superb. If you are still looking send me a PM, and we can talk about the FA50

    Are you after lens speed alone - f/1.4, 1.8, etc? If not, consider also the 1:1 macro capability of the Σ50mm F2.8 EX DG Macro
    with the smaller max. aperture of f/2.8.

    CC, Image editing OK.
