Re: So there is no issue at all as far as we can see

Daniel, no issue with what? With the FA50mm? If you would write more than one sentence it would help trying to decipher what youre trying to get at! If youre talking about no problem with the FA50- yes that is correct - there is NOTHING wrong with the FA50mm and I never said there was.

Any problem that I am getting (such as FF and inaccurate metering using the aperture ring) with the FA50mm mounted on my K10 is due to the fault of the K10!! Not the FA50!! I know this because I get inaccurate metering with the M lens too using the aperture ring and I get inaccurate focusing with my DA lenses too so its not the FA50mm!! I never said it was - why are you going on and on about the FA50mm?? I really dont know what else to say to you at this point.

I never said the FA50 had issues!! The lens is great - period, end
of story - what is this obsession with the FA50?? Are you even
reading my posts? I am not criticising the FA50 - This thread is
not about the FA50** The first paragraph was just a point that I am
glad I got my FA50 - thats it!!

Since I got the FA50 f1.4 - I can confirm two things:

Well there was apparently no issue at all???? Was it????? .
