Re: what about that DA* 55mm? (pros, cons, and opinions sought)

Thanks for the honest opinion. I am hardly shooting with a K3 here-- just a humble K-30, although its autofocus seems to work quite well with my other lenses. I'll admit I'm slightly concerned about the focus issues I've been reading about, but I am not a fast paced shooter, but rather plodding and deliberate, and the FA 50mm has got me pretty used to missed shots.

Still hoping somebody can advise me on whether a quick dose of manual prefocus will speed things up. This technique works very well with the 35mm macro Limited, which is inclined to run out to its full length when going from macro work out to subjects at a distance.

Optically, there seem to be no questions left to ask.
