Thanks SBS, for the kind offer but I decided to by a new 50mm SMC DA 1.8.

That looks like a good decision to me.

There is one thing that is better at then 50 mm DA 1.8 than at the FA 50 mm 1.7: The DA les is recognized by the camera and the lens information will be stored in the EXIF.

You will have access to automatic lens corrections of the camera and if you want to do post-processing afterwards I guess that any program will recognize and support this lens while I have to search for soemthing tha fits for my FA 50 mm (ON1 has the M version on their list).

This is no advangtage from the pure optical point of view - but for practial work it does make a difference.

Best regards
