Re: 50mm lens for my K-5?

The DA 50 has the quickshift focus mech which I find helps a lot to get a head start with focussing.

Just looked on BH and got stunned at the price of a DA 40mm which is one of my favorites (wow, price hikes or what!). the DA 50mm knocks it off in terms of price and aperture so thats that sorted.

I can't vouch for any of the AF 50mm lenses, but it would be interesting to know if anybody has compared low light focussing speeds. With the light construction of the DA 35 and 50mm lenses I would expect the camera motor to be able to focus faster due to less force needed, no?
