I have a pentax smc-m 50/1.4 (bought with a working pentax k-1000 for 40 usd!) and i found that fast old lenses like 50/1.4s flare a lot wide open, if you can get a hood or try to avoid directly to 45 to the sun, the lens will perform much better. There is a lot of light bouncing around since the lens was meant for a 35mm film.

Here is the link of the thread I made where there was a discussion on focus assist.


The moire shimmer is what I use mostly, some times you can be off, but if you take your time and carefully go through the focus zone, you will figure out the focus sweet spot by using clues like moire and the finger "feel" of your rotation through the zone.
