I agree with Tom, the Pentax 50mm manual lenses are generally considered some of the best made.

I've just purchased a 35mm A lens but I haven't had a chance to use it yet! It'll be interesting to see how it performs against the 50's. I bought it to use as a "normal" lens with the DS however I'm impressed with the FOV and DOF may be a good lens to try out with the old film camera?

could you keep us posted on that one please? I've been on the lookout for one of those...

I don't know what everyone else's fascination is with the 50, but for me the 50 and now the 77 I just bought will be used as portrait lenses. On my DL and K10 the 50mm will give a FOV of a 75mm. Good for a short portrait lens.Now if the darn thing would just get in. I ordered well over a month ago and Im still waiting. I ordered the 77mm f1.8 Limited and got it in 2 days.:lol:
