Re: What are your thoughts on this lens...

It's a really nice lens, Tom.

Years ago when I shot with analog Pentaxes, I used the Pentax Takumar predecessor to this lens - the 50mm f/1.4 Tak - and it gave great results.

I will only echo what a few other posters have said - the f/1.7 version of this lens may actually be a little sharper.  There are several versions of the Pentax f/1.7 but the FA version (the last one made during the film era) is truly a superb lens.  I recently bought a copy for my KP and it has a great combination of affordability and superb image quality.

Whether you get the f/1.4 or the f/1.7, you won't go wrong.
