Don,t worry alvin, after my last lens I have to paint the bedroom It was a smc a35-70f4 and I use it a lot, I like the range and the macro focus. Oh well, it's raining ice right now so might as well paint tomorrow.(If I get a 300mm I might have to paint the house!)
Fortunately, we are renting the condo we live in so I don't have to paint.

I do spoil my wife a lot, so I have no guilt buying these lenses. We'll see how she reacts. I brought a couple out and tried them around the house and she didn't seem to notice, yet.

Keep the K28/3.5

Oh yeah the M28 is so tiny compared to the K28. Still dunno which one I will give to my friend.
Keep the K28/3.5 if the condition is good. It has been rated as the one of the best 28mm lenses to get if you can find it. Have a look at this link here:

Brief Comments

And here is rating posted on the above URL:
K28/3.5, K28/2 >= M28/3.5 >= FA28/2.8AL >>> M28/2.8 (old) >M28/2.8 (later), A28/2.8, F28/2.8

And a quote:
"Go for a used K28/3.5 (SMC PENTAX 28mm f/3.5), a cheap but optically excellent lens, IMO. It is the sharpest 28mm lens that Pentax ever made.

Or go for a used M28/3.5 (smc PENTAX-M 28mm f/3.5), a cheap but good lens, IMHO."
