I finally went to NY and got my pentax fa 50mm 1.4, and i have to say it's amazing.

Also for portraits is quite good, nice to shoot at 2.0 or less inside the house, i even managed to shoot in completely low light in the ny aquarium, and thing came quite decent. I'll try to resize some pictures and post them.

I think for now I'll be fine with this lens. Next purchase will be the flash from sigma when i can.

I bought the 77mm f1.8 limited and Imo it's WELL worth the money. Excellent bokeh and sharpness of subject. If you're really into portraits, and have the cash to do so, you won't be sorry. That plus my FA 5omm 1.4 have me fairly well covered but I'm looking at the 50-135* coming out as well. Depends on whats up with Pentax after the merger I guess. Anyway good luck on your portraits.

I like the DA 40. Nice sharpness, color and blur. Good for all around shots. I think the DA 70 would be nice, but limited to head and shoulder shots.

DA 40 4.5 1/180 iso 400 flash

I had the Pentax 40mm f/2.8 Limited and it produced very sharp results but i found it not wide enough for allround shooting , having to step back once too often when wanting to get the whole subject into frame ( like a monument or church in a narrow street).

So i wanted a very bright standard lens (50mm in old film), therefore i got the Sigma 30mm f/1.4
