XR Rikenon 28mm f/3.5 lens

Today I purchased a very reasonably priced copy of the XR Rikenon 28/3.5 lens.
I have read claims that except for filter size and cosmetics it is identical to the SMC Pentax-M 28mm f/3.5 lens.
Once I receive it I will have both lenses, and it will be interesting to compare.
If it's anything like my XR Rikenon 35/2.8, it should be excellent.
Has any forum member used this lens?

I only found the F2.8 version in our DB: Ricoh 28mm F2.8 Rikenon XR Lens Reviews - Pentax Third-Party Lens Review Database

Could you add the other, along with a photo?

not tried their 28, but

I've been quite happy with Rikenon lenses. The 50/2P is sharper than my copy of Pentax' 50/2A (though the bokeh is less pleasant), and the XR 135/2.8 is great in all respects. I also have a worn 28-100/4P that does pretty well, but contrast is a bit low - and at 605g I really have to want it along! That's pretty heavy in my book, er- bag.
