Does anyone have an FA 50mm f/1.4

and shoot with it on a current crop sensor Pentax?  Through brandrx's post on the 100mm Macro (another lens that I am sort of interested in) I found KEH's stock of used FA lenses, and noticed the 50mm f/1.4.  My favorite prime in my film days was my 85mm f/2 M, and I am still looking for a way to get that field of view on my K-30. Regular readers of this forum may have been following my gyrations on this subject ...

Now KEH tells me that I could have an FA 50mm f/1.4 for a very modest investment.  The fact that I haven't heard of it or read much about it makes me a little skeptical.  And then there are those used 43 mm Limiteds.  (silver one ...)  Still some saving ahead for that one, even used.
