Pentax SMCP-FA 50mm f/1.4 Lens Standard AF Lens #20817 as an affordable option when I can't really afford the 1.4 super expensive lens? Right now it's under $350.

I had that lens, then ended up with a copy of the cheaper DA 50/1.7 and compared the two, and saw no reason to keep the heavier FA lens.  I didn't miss the extra half stop, and by every other measure the cheap plastic lens was always a little bit better.
