It was a toss-up between the DA55/1.4 or the Nokton 58/1.4 and one has to go

This copy is in Excellent condition (not far off mint) with caps and box.

You probably know the reputation of lens if you're reading this, well IMO it truly deserves it. It has a beautifully smooth focus action, is superbly constructed (on a par with the FA Limiteds), is full-frame ready (slightly topical) and is no longer available in the Pentax A mount

Here's a sample of what it can do (no sharpening) at f1.4...




... and here's a mini album with shots at various apertures and all sizes (inc original) available...

Yes it is FF. I had one and regretfully sold it recently. My eyes are getting too poor for reliable manual focussing on the K-3. It's a stellar lens - superb build and image quality/rendering.

As Papa_Lazarou says it is Full Frame and truly excellent IQ - I'd even go as far as to say it's better than the Pentax DA*55 at 1.4, 1.6 and 2.0, after that they are pretty close - IMO

I've just come back from Havana in Cuba and used the Nikon fit version of this lens on my FF body - I used it more than any other lens I took, and am very happy with the images I got. Slightly soft at f1.4 but you'd expect that, and absolutely superb by the time you get beyond f2.8. If I knew I was getting a K-1 I would buy one of these without a second thought.

Cheers,

Jon

It's a terrible problem to have...

...choosing to use the Nokton 58/1.4, the DA*55/1.4 or the A 50/1.2....

...but I'll cope
