With focus peaking on the K3 you will be able to do some neat bokeh effects. The 50 f1.2 is sharp as you stop down to at least f2.8.


-- hide signature --

this is taken at f1.2

and I even have sharper ones at 1.2

At certain portrait distances in certain lighting this is sharper in the very middle than both FA50mm 1.4 and DA*55mm. Both of which I have

So I reccomend at 1.2 to have whatever you need really sharp in the middle and then crop.

I recommend this gem of a lens, Live View magnified is essential for best results at 1.2
