Pentax never made a bad 50mm .

The Pentax-M 50/2 does not have a good reputation.

It seems to be soft at F2.0. But perfectly fine stopped down.

The M50/1.7 is sharp already at 1.7 and cheap and therefore a no brainer if you have those two to choose from.

Yes, you are correct in that it was never the best Pentax 50mm. But it was not a bad one (stopped down), and its selling price relected it. I should know....I have them all !!

Wow..quite a collection you've got there:-)

ha ha ha ... I am impressed!

I have quite many myself, including the M50/2. Two of them I think. Got those when buying cameras.

BTW - have you made any serious comparison?
