D FA 50 On Its Way


I just ordered the D FA 50 from Amazon (I often order from Amazon, as well as B&H). Should be here Friday.

I hope to use the D FA 50 at an ocean shoot this weekend, along with my 77 Lmtd, both on my K1.

I do not have the expertise to perform scientific testing, but I will play around with the lens and am happy to upload DNG files to Dropbox.

I have the 31, 43, and 77 Lmtds, along with the D FA 24-70, and D FA 28-105. Obviously these are all different lenses, with different designs, focal lengths, intended uses, and price points, but I plan on performing a general comparison.

I tend to focus on Mixed Martial Arts, strongman, and fitness photography, but I also take pictures of our children, occasionally take pictures of local musicians at night clubs, and do some portrait work where a high quality fast 50mm lens should come in handy.

If anyone has any requests for various kinds of pictures, please let me know (I also have a K3 and K5ii and am happy to use the D FA 50 on these, as well).
