K28 3.5 vs. M28 2.8

Five or six years ago, , I bought a M 28 2.8 in good condition, and I really enjoyed using it and the images it took. It was well-built, and a solid performer.
Then I bought the k28 3.5. It was a revelation. Incredible rendering and corner to corner sharpness.
I recently bought a FA 31, and I still can't bear to part with the k28 3.5. It is that good.

If I ever really sold everything, "everything" would be "except" a K-mount something and the K28/3.5. I would turn the 35/3.5 and 200/2.5 into money first.

I think he was wrong to put the F version last. (Last in a beauty contest, absolutely. ) He obviously saw something he didn't like with that formula, condemning the whole series. Maybe it doesn't work on film.
I am stunned that you referred to film. I thought about it and realized it was 15 years ago that I was devouring these LIST_SERVE messages, and ten years ago that I was dividing my Pentax Bookmarks into sub-folders. There were hundreds of them.

Then I lost the .pst file in a laptop upgrade.
