Considering the hood and that many glass-air surfaces i doubt it does well for flare and transmission, plus a 77mm filter thread, Ok so my Sigma has a 77mm filter thread but Pentax can produce a 50mm F1.4 with a 49mm filter thread so what gives? I'm sure it will be good in many ways but there is no justifying that price unless it gives better than perfect macro performance at F1.4 and gets better from there as you stop down
