Re: D FA 50 On Its Way

Congratulations.

I'd love to see comparisons on the K-1 with the 43 Limited.  My first prime, it seems to be disappointing me more lately  - but that may simply be because I'm daydreaming about the new 50.

As an aside, it's interesting how lenses and FLs fall out of favor. I take only about 5% of my pictures with the 43 these days, and I assume that's because i tend to see things slightly wide, or telephoto - and choose that day's lens accordingly.  I wonder whether, as someone suggested here, a lens like the new 50 1.4 would make its own uses, whatever one's priors are.

Look forward to your report!
