Re: And you thought Pentax lenses were expensive

A 50mm lens that weighs a kilogram?  It seems to me that size and weight are compromises.  As a landscape enthusiast, I can think of more practical lenses for the field. There won't be too many of these going to the Himalayas....... I would also predict that it won't handle flare and harsh backlight all that well.   I'll stick to my FA50/2.8 thanks.  If I was Canon shooter I could buy both the 24mm and 45mm TS lenses for the same money and never look back.
