Scored a Pentax K 28mm f2.0

Had to pay for US $233 to get it. Physically its a mint lens w/ no dings and just occasional dust specs. A close inspection upon purchasing I noticed that the rear element was previously cleaned and had traces of being infected by fungus in the past. I had bought some lens that were previously been infected and had it cleaned at a local shop and turned out to be very sharp. This one seems to be lacking the contrast that I expect from the lens. 3D close up rendering seems to be present though.

Sample at f2.0

I guess I just need to use it more often.....a bit better stopped down.
