Conclusion from DPReview, “So it’s big, it’s heavy and it’s very sharp. But is it worth $1200? That’s a hard question to answer, given the paucity of other options for Pentax full-frame users. Older Pentax primes are showing their age, and currently, third-party 50mm options for PK mount are non-existent. Right now, for Pentax users wanting a modern fast 50mm, the HD FA* 50mm F1.4 is the only game in town...”pentax-hd-50mm-f-1.4-sdm-aw-lens
