50/f1.4 SMC-M vs SMC-K & 35/f2 SMC Takumar vs. SMC-M

Hi! It's my first post.

I already have a 50/f1.4 SMC-K lens, and I'm wondering, does anyone have both the SMC-K and SMC-M versions? I'm wondering if there is any difference, and if so, which one is better.

Also, I want to buy a 35MM f/2, but I see there are many different versions. In particular, the M42 SMC Takumar seems to have a much larger front element in the photos I've seen than the Pentax-M, but the Pentax-M is newer... Does anyone know which of these lenses is the better one?
