Anyone has tried this lens? I saw on ebay, they sell it for 92 SGD (new + UV filter + free shipping).

Limited * :bsmilie:

Buy the Pentax 50mm f/1.7 instead lah, it's same price or slightly more only.

I doubt there is anything bad or wrong with the lens.
Its just that there are so many cheap and very good 50mm MF options available from Pentax and other better known manufacturers (eg. Ricoh, Cosina, etc)

I'll go for the Pentax-M 50mm f1.7 over this any time.
IQ for pentax is just too good.
For a modern MF, it does not even has A settings... :dunno:

I may sound like a snob but this lens give me I also don't want. The Limited * thing is just a super cheapskate imitation. There sure are better alternatives.

I was actually going to buy this but I already have:

Chinon 50mm F1.4
Pentax A50mm F1.4
Ricoh P 50mm F1.7
Ricoh P 50mm F2.0 (Loan to another bro)

So I did not get it in the end . . .
