M20 on K1

Hi

Could anybody share their experiences with using the M20 and K1?

Sharpness / flare resistance / starburst / plays well with filters?

Pinholecam here on the forum (Jenkwang on Flickr) has posted impressive results with K1.

I have been shooting M20/4 with my K5 IIs and been pleased with results.

I used mine on film a lot.

The colors are wonderful, especially blue water,
but I found the mustache distortion distracting,
and that would be hard to correct even on digital.

On APS-C digital (12MP), the sharpness at landscape distance
wasn't as good as what I could get from the DA L II 18-55mm kit lens.
So don't expect too much on the K-1.

Flare does not appear to be a problem

@ f5.6 this evening (K5 IIs)

I have this lens and I really like it.

Not the best in resolution for the 36mp K1, but a fair trade-off for the superb small size and weight.
Almost always the first UWA I think about when I want to bring one along.
Lovely rich colors from it too.

A more detail impression here on the lens review page.
