About video, while I love to make us of the shallow DOF using these lenses, I will not be shooting wide-open. I tested the Super-Tak for a video today and was shooting at f/4.0. Even then, it was a little tough to keep everything I wanted in focus. I have been using the Canon 50mm f/1.4 and was not satisfied with the MF'ing in that lens for video. I thought of giving these lenses a shot to see how they will work out (considering I got them for a reasonable price). If they don't, I will have to explore other options.
I am amazed with how small and light the Pentax lenses are. I have a Canon FD 50mm f/1.4 and that is big and heavy compared to these. Regarding the macro, I took a few shots at 1:1, and immediately realized that hand-holding is not recommended, when the light is not optimal. I will take them out sometime this week and test it out in brighter conditions. My initial read of the macro is "Wow"!, but I am yet to really explore using the full capabilities of the lens. I will keep updating this thread as I experiment.
