    Pentax Forums has a Nifty 50 that has been doing the rounds of the globe between users for a couple years now. I believe they are actually on their 3rd lens as the first two went astray.

    Anyway it is making it's journey through Australia at the moment and I had my week with it. Nothing really special, just documenting a bit of my area of the world with this lens.

    I wish nifty didn't rhyme with 50.

    Lol... Cheers for the feedback. I'll take it on board and see what I can do about it.

    :)

    nice shots though, the bokeh reminds me a bit of the canon 50/1.8 but looks a bit nicer in some shots, the 1.7 has 6 aperture blades by the looks of it.

    Was thinking of getting one for my MZ50, but then decided I already have enough cameras I never use.

    Despite selling off all my Pentax gear this is the one lens that didn't initially sell and I now can't bring myself to part with it. I still have hopes one day of getting back into a Pentax system and using it again.
