Hands-on with the Pentax HD FA* 50mm F1.4

The last time we saw the Pentax D FA* 50mm F1.4 it was an unfinished prototype at the CP+ show in Yokohama, back in March. Following some delays earlier this year (and a lot of patience from the Pentax faithful), it's finally shipping, and is available now for $1200.

Now that the finished article is in our hands and we've had some time to shoot with it and examine the results, we wanted to update our earlier impressions of this powerful lens, including some notes on image quality with the full-frame K-1 II.
