I've got this lens after long doubtful thinking because I have too many lenses covering this FL (50/1.4 , 50/2.8 macro, 16-50, 50-135, 60-250, 55-300). But I don't have any regrets from the very first shots. On my K5IIs, the focus is spot on, and in the darkness, I could beat my friend's 7D+70/200 2.8 II IS each and every time regarding focus accuracy and speed. Comparing it's IQ with 50/1.4, I love 55's much much more.
