Telezenitar MC 2.8/135 - K mount...?

Hello pentaxians.
I've stumbled upon weird lens - Telezenitar MC 135mm F2.8 for K mount, non-APO version, said to be manufactured in 2003. It's really weird, because I cannot find absolutely any information about this particular model (non APO, K-mount).
APO version is supposed to be one of the best lenses made in Russia, a worthy rival of Sonnar 135mm. But this... I just have no clue. Is this lens worth anything? How does it compare with MC Sonnar 135mm F3.5?
Can anybody help me out?

Have you tried to take some pictures with this lens?
I hope you have a digital camera, so I would not tried to find an info in internet but made a couple of shots with it.

If you can read Russian...

Good luck!

I don't have that lens - wouldn't even ask. I'm considering to purchase it, or the Sonnar.
I can't read Russian, but thanks for the link.

EDIT: And nevermind about the question now. I just bought Sonnar.

I hope you will find this interesting...
Try Google is understandable...
The summary - there is no bif difference between the APO and non- APO except the price.

Good luck!

One can buy this lens in FSU for ~$90 I believe. Maybe cheaper. I've heard (most probably from wikipedia) the K-mount version was not in serial production, though it exists. Not sure if this statement should be trusted at all.
