Pentax-M 24-35mm

M 24-35/3.5

Has anybody use this lens? How is it? What would the range be on my K10D? It wouldn't retain its wideness right?

I used to have this lens - on film it is has an ideal range for using as a walk-around candid lens. On digital your 24-35mm becomes equivalent to a 35-50mm zoom (not nearly as usefull IMHO). For a zoom it is really small and the build quality is good. Picture quality is fine - nothing spectacular but not bad for what it is (I have only used it with film cameras). What I really hated about it was the lack of a usable DOF scale on the lens - that pushed me over the edge in favor of dumping it.
