a few shots with SMC M 135 / 3.5


first time posting some shots here but I recently picked up this M lens for a few bucks and was pleased with the results. When focused properly the images are pretty remarkably sharp. And it meters well with the K10D. Some examples here. thanks for looking.

From what I have seen thus far, the SMC M 135/3.5 is the sharpest lens I have.

I have the m42 smc 135/3.5, and it is incredibly sharp too with very little CA when wide open. I've used it to shoot sports with pretty decent results.
