    They're different... Some have different optical designs, # of blades, etc.

    For the 50/1.4, the older one supposedly has better bokeh, but they also turn yellow due to radioactive elements (which can be cured by UV/sunlight).

    Lots of info in the lens review database at Pentax Forums.

    Is it just me or do the Lens Barrel,Aperture and Focus rings etc look identical to the Helios 44 range of lenses?

    Love the "Marilyn" shots! Bit of nostalgia there for me!
