Pentax SMC M 28mm f/3.5 ?

Does anyone have any experience with this lens please? I'm looking into building up a collection of these types of lenses for my K10D.
Thanks
Ashley

I don't have any experience with this one, but I have the K version of this lens and I love it!

From the research I have done, it seams that the K version is sharper than the M. Also, when you have them in your hands, the K feels nicer.

You can compare them by visiting those two threads:

The M 28/3.5 is a wonderful lens. I used to use it as a walk about with my film cameras. Set all the orange dots lined up, and point and shoot. What really pleasantly surprised me about the lens was the limited distortion it had compared to many another wide angle.

Thanks everyone. It looks like a great lens! I'm very pleased with my 70-210 so far so I think the 28mm is next.
