New Pentax owner - where are the 50mm primes?
Jan 6, 2012

I am a long time Nikon user (from F4- D7000); however, by virtue of a too good to pass up deal on a K5 body, I am giving Pentax a go. 50mm is a must-have in my bag and I am a little perplexed by the poor selection of reasonably priced 50mm primes for Pentax. My choices seem to be a $350 Pentax 1.4 (with mediocre reviews), $500 Sigma 1.4, and $650 Pentax 1.4. I have searched and can't find a ~$200 1.8- Is there one I missed?
