Great value, great images, don't let the price fool you

  • Summary: I was very hesitant to purchase this lens because of the plastic mount. I'm so grad I looked beyond that because this lens is excellent. It might be made of plastic but it is a gem. I own the FA 50mm f1.4 and have used it for over 5 years now. After using this lens I gave the FA 50mm f1.4 to my son.

  • Excerpt: It was meant to be a part of the Pentax K-50 family and it is. Although I wish I could have afforded the f/1.4 lens, this lens works fine and is well made and a perfect addition to the Pentax K-50 family of DSLR cameras. Highly recommend it.
