Pros: Sharpness at f/1.4

Cons: Weight, but for quality you see you need

Opinion: One of the best goals Ever built by Pentax, a generational shot, a new way of doing things. This lens makes several colleagues pale. I had the opportunity to try it and although I already have sigma art this is really on the same level if not more. You can count the pores of the skin... I'm told the new 85mm Pentax house is even better. I can't wait to try that too. I thought it was more weight, with the K-1 the whole thing is very balanced.

Pros: general quality, very responsive and accurate autofocus, defect-free images of sorts already at full opening

Cons: don't have it on the k1

Opinion: Pentax, with the latest goals, has accustomed us to dealing with volumes and important weights. This 50 DFA star f 1.4 that has more or less the size and weight of the HD DFA 24-70 f 2.8 is no exception. Nothing to do with the old limited, which by comparison look like Lilliputians. Actually what convinced me to buy was just the comparative test that cameraville did on youtube, between this 50mm and the 43 f 1.9 limited, this is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00P4VkuST2k I made about 60 shots and all to f 1.4 and I have to say that the yield is exceptional and the autofocus is just as fantastic, I do not know the performance of the other brands but I think they are not better than the k1 with this goal, perhaps thanks to the great brightness. Very interesting is also the fact that when used on the k70 it becomes a 75 f 1.4, the non plus ultra of portraiture. The thing I like most about Pentax is that it goes its own way, offering the best it can without chasing the competition and without producing unnecessary things, the only thing that cares is the quality of the products it puts on the market and those who choose it know and appreciate it. P.s.: the purchase figure here on Juza is excessive, I bought it at much less with Fowa warranty, search on the internet. Next day's update: I took 480 shots in a single evening between 9.30pm and 11.30pm with almost only the light of the illuminated fountains, the only 2 blurred photos are due to the fact that for a moment I tried, wrongly, manual focus. Peace and love.

Pros: Resolution, Blur, AUTOFOCUS, build quality, lens hood, MF bezel

Cons: Price

Opinion: Difficult to describe this lens, the feeling that you try to use it and surrender because the whole is beautiful; One has the feeling of using a future goal, with a technical/technological gap abysmal compared to the old optics; The resolution is incredible, never before seen a perspective that 1.4 had such a stellar definition to see the pixels sharp, all seasoned by a beautiful blur. Resolution therefore that does not require any deepening, you find as much as you want from 1.4 at least up to 5.6; The blur is fabulous, the three-dimensionality of the lens is exaggerated; Impressive contrast from TA! The AF is something unusual for the Pentax world; Never seen a similar velocity; It can pass in a moment from 1 meter to infinity, with a total noiselessness, almost not to understand if the AF is active or not; The precision is more than excellent, given that at close distances and at TA can snath a few mm; On the other hand the manual focus or a possible correction is particularly easy, ring with sliding and fabulous friction, also excellent the switch on the barrel that works without any impointing. The mechanical construction is beautiful, stuff from the old 85 STAR, with a fantastic lens hood that blends well with the side profile of the lens; Using it is a pleasure. The aberrations are visible only in extreme conditions or very difficult, however always far below the optics like the Stars for APSC and then we talk about a portraiture optics; Not even remotely close to 50 FA 1.4 or 55 1.4 star; These goals are not an alternative but two worlds below! I think is the top ever achieved by Pentax, at least to date, since in 2019 will have to exit the new 85 1.4! Does it cost too much? Perhaps but compared to the 55 * or the 43 limited are better spent in this "obese"!
