While at the Javitz show on Thursday I had the opportunity to sample\nboth the 43/1.9 Limited lens in black (Yum!) and the somewhat rare to\nfind (or buy) 50mm f/1.4 FA - unfortunately I was only able to test\nthese on a K10 (DSLR) body (and a K100?) so with the 1.5 crop factor I\ndid not get the chance to see the true difference in angle of\nview/coverage I would have gotten had I used a full frame 35mm SLR\n(mine unfortunately was not with me at the time). The 43 had very nice\nbokeh but the 1.4's bokeh was "sublimeish". I am trying to choose\nbetween the two lenses, can't afford to get them both (and even getting\none might take a bit of saving too). I am aware of the 43's "sublime"\nmicro-contrast and 3D bokeh, but only through web examples. I also know\nthat it is less than sharp wide open but improves a stop or two down\nand that it has fall off in focus/slight exposure darkening arond the\nedges?/corners. As just said the 50mm 1.4 has sublime bokeh but its\nbokeh (to me) doesn't appear as three dimensional in its transition as\nthe Limited lens (again from web examples only - that's all, besides\nthe show, that I have to go on other than other's opinions). I have\nalso been to Stan Halpin's site (pardon my English/spelling) and the\nPDML (not to mention read posts in this group on the subject - but I'll\nmention it anyways ;-)). Cost (when/if I can afford them) is not a\nfactor (or won't be when I have the money ;-)). I can't decide on which\nlens I should get first and I am equally torn between both lens's bokeh\nrendition and am not sure whether the 7mm difference will or won't\nafffect my shooting style (mainly half shots of people w/ a selective\nfocus background and some environment (which leaves out the 77 Limited\nand 85 lenses in their various incarnations) and a wide range of\ngeneral usage). I'd flip a coin to decide but it would probably stand\non edge ;-).\n\nAny thoughts (both from Pentaxian users/others)?\n\nThanks in advance :-).
