M200mm vs K200mm

The M is lighter than the K and the filter size is 52mm on the M and 58mm on the K. Does anybody know how much different the IQ is between these two?

Thanks for your help.

Ken

I've got the M42 200mm f4 and like it but am getting lazy about switching between bayonet and screw mount. The M is 130grams lighter and 26cm shorter which should help in hand holding.

Thanks,

Ken
