Re: How good is the Pentax 50mm f1.2 A lens?

There is special threads on Fred miranda forums and pentax forums for F1.2 lens fans. A 50mm 1.2 is pricey, but sharpness is good.

Although I better like Olympus OM 1.2 lens and Cosina 55mm 1.2 lens - for exceptionally funky bokeh. I would rate these two as the best superfast manual primes to play with christmas lights and other interesting lights left in bokeh area.

Where Olympus is usable through adapter etc. But Cosina is already made at Pentax mount.

Just go to Google images and search for: Cosina 55mm 1.2 bokeh

or: OM 1.2 bokeh

From these images you can easily find comparisons, etc.
