SMC Pentax-M 35-70mm F2.8-3.5

Anyone had any experience with this lens? I just picked one up on eBay for about $35US. It's listed in the lens review data base but has no reviews or comments.

in the old film-slr days I had this lens.
have a lens-test from an old photo-mag too.

Found handling to be nice but never got used the the reversed zoom-mechanism.
As for sharpness I didn't had a problem.
But I found the 4/35-70 to be better.... optically.
Build-quality of the 35-70 is very good.
