Pentax fa 50mm f1.4 or da 40mm f2.8 ltd for a beginner.

I'm new to the dslr world, and I'm looking to learn more about photography and have a bit more room to play with DoF and low light...

I understand that the 50mm is a faster lens, but considering size and IQ, what would you guys recommend? For those of you with experience, if you could imagine yourselves back to when you started, what would you have purchased?

I currently have the WR kit lens, and the da 55-300mm.

The focal lengths seem quite similar and the price is nearly identical in the UK.

Many thanks for any help!!!
