    The A 50/1.7 is way sharper (and probably one of the *sharpest* normals out there) than the "pancake" 40/2.8.
    There are some lenses that have been changed between the M and A versions, but most lenses are pretty much the same.

    Example of a shot with my Pentax 50/1.4 alot of grain and a little distortion because of a Yellow filter but otherwise shows why I like this lens.

    Check out my website for a photo made with the cheap 50mm f2 lens wide open. It's the red maple shot. Says a lot about Pentax's multicoating...

    take a look at these tests:

    in my lens line-up, the M28/3.5, A50/1.7 and the M100/4 Macro are my favorites. I must mention that the M100/4 gives really good results at infinity.

    looking more closely at the resolution tests, they reveal that those new "limited" lenses are in fact not sharper than their old manual equivalents.

    I beg to differ with those saying the pancake lens is not sharp. I have made rather large blowups from NPS 160 negs taken with this lens that are extremely sharp. Every bit as good as any Nikkor, Canon for Leitz glass I have ever used in the same or similar focal length.
