Crosspost from KP thread. These pictures are all taken with the KP+Tak 135 Bayonet 2.5. This lens is simply a joy to use, the pictures only got better as I moved up to the KP. 135mm just has that look, it's almost like magic.
I recently acquired a copy of this lens, but since doing so, the weather has been too murky for it to be any use. Looking forward to some clearer days to take advantage of it. I hope it lives up to the standard of my other K lenses.

I don't think you'll be disappointed. It's a very sharp lens, especially when stopped down to about f4. (Example here: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4898/46121692351_24a3c4eda1_o.jpg just check out the details in the feathers!)

Lens becomes deadly sharp at 5.6-8. It's even good at f2.8. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4807/46121693641_fd02f89933_o.jpg This is an example at I believe 2.8 or one click up.

There's some speculation that the Tak Bayonet 135s are just the Pentax A design with different coatings, and given the performance that has been noted among both the 2.5 and 2.8 copies of this lens I wouldn't be surprised.
