Pentax "A" 28-135mm Zoom.

I've owned plenty of Pentax 'em. Had an LX & many bayonet mount lenses...but I've now "gone back" to screwmount.....because I like them.
However, during the time I owned my Super A (very under rated!), & my LX, there was a lens that I purchased that I thought was an absolute ripper, & which probably spent the most time on the front of my LX & that was the Pentax "A" 28/135 zoom...a beautiful lens, built like a tank, & very versatile...but maybe a bit heavy.
This is an AWESOME lens, constant F4....but never mentioned on this forum.....I also had a 35/105.....and yep....a nice lens....but not with the same range as the 28/135.
If you see one, I'd say, is a lovely lens.
Any thoughts?
Cheers, Pickles.

I was always under the impression that its IQ was worse than that of the 35-105mm.
