M 28mm f/3.5 replaced...

The Sigma 24mm f/2.8 aperture level failed so I returned it. They had 2 lenses close to what I wanted and I ended up picking the M 28mm f/3.5. It is mint inside and out.

So here are a few examples right after I picked it up today;

The first 3 are f/8, the last 2 are f/3.5
No sharpening, it just was not required!

Nice pics, the M28/3.5 really is a very nice lens. Mine is always in the bag.

Looks great, mine's (hopefully) still in the post, and I'm waiting for its arrival. Can't wait to shoot some film with it

I just ordered one for my film body last night. I'm really curious to see how well it performs against my DA21.

For anybody who's interested in seeing more pics taken with the M28/3.5, I found some on pbase: Pentax smc P-M 28mm f/3.5 Lens Sample Photos and Specifications
