Gear and a photo

Thought I'd add another gear item and a photo to go with it.  My first "real" lens (that is to say, something designed within the last 5 years) is the SMC Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4.

This lens has wonderful color rendition and great resolving power.  It's relatively cheap compared to other newer lenses at about $250 used.  Fantastic low-light performance due to it's wide aperture and quick autofocus that I've not had any problems with.  I've used this lens for portraits and general walk-around shooting, doing well in both.  See below for a portrait I took with the lens and see a previous post for my shot of the No. 92 train at Strassburg PA.
