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.

Thanks, Tom W

It is good. But it cannot compare to the DFA*50/1.4. Not even close.

It has focus shift so it can be hard to focus correctly. The FA 50/1.7 is a safer bet.

You can get a FA 50/1.7 on eBay for under $200.
