Re: No need to spend big money for resolution

I agree. the Rikenon 50s lack the SMC coatings of the Pentax lenses and from experience they have an inferior contrast. An M42 Yashica Yashinon 50/1.7 I had for awhile was better than the Riks. One reason I still have my Pentax A 50/1.4 is I have yet to acquire another 50mm lens to equal or beat it. But I still have more to compare it with.
