Snagged a Sears 50 mm f/1.7. Try to contain your jealousy please

I know a lot of you might be terribly jealous. But I snagged a Sears 50 mm f/1.7. Made in Japan!

Here are a couple of shots on a K1. (works fine, no hiccups, just manual focus and only shoots wide open)

Now I can hardly wait for my JC Penney lenses to arrive.

ever faithful ever patient

considering how fuzzy things are, I was a bit surprised that in LiveView with focus peaking the whole screen highlights to show "in-focus"
