p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Anyone seeing a comparison between Pentax A 50mm 1.7 and Sony 50 1.8 E Mount ?


I have the Pentax but I am always wondering if I would get any improvements IQ wise by getting the Sony instead for my NEX-6

Thanks!

depends on what you mean by an improvement? that pentax is an extremely sharp lens and i sincerely doubt the sony will beat it (probably won't quite match it) for sharpness. the sony might have better CA correction, not sure though. the sony should have smoother bokeh in general and no hexagons stopped down and an overall gentler rendering from what i've seen. the big advantages for it would be stabilization and AF (if your into that).

Well I mostly use the 50mm for portraits and I never felt like I needed stabilization really. So I guess I was looking for sharpness, contracts, color all that stuff.
Looks like the Pentax is a keeper.
