Re: How good is the Pentax 50mm f1.2 A lens?

I've had and sold the K50mm F1.2 (should be the same formula) It was adequate for the little i used it. I also copied the optical formula for it from the patent to an optics program and sure enough even at F1.2 its quite good! I don't think it was ever specified in the marketing material but it has one aspheric surface.
