loving my new manual primes

So much that I've already put one zoom on eBay, 2 more to go.

I thought the 50 1.7 was sharp, but the 28 3.5 is even sharper. The 24-60 already sacrificed, maybe even the 50 -135.

It's tidy, 2011.

Full disclosure had sluggish focus 12 or so months ago, I've 'exercised' it every week since with no problems.

Which one is this? The K? I have the SMC-Takumar 28/3.5, and I wonder to what extent they share formulae (i.e. is yours just the same optical pathway ported over to K mount; if so, I should use my SMC-Tak a little more.)

The K 28mm f3.5 is different than the Takumar or the M version.

It's the M 3.5 28mm, and I love the perspective.

Will post shots once I do some sorting .
