SMC PENTAX-M 28mm F/1.7 STANDARD LENS

I'm new here so maybe you guys have already discussed this somewhere. Does anyone have experience with the "SMC PENTAX-M 28mm F/1.7"? How does it compare (besides the obvious F/1.7!) to the "SMC PENTAX-M 28mm F/3.5"? Thanks!

There is no 28mm f/1.7. There are f/2, f/2.8 and f/3.5 versions. All are good.

Thanks much! I was wondering why I couldn't find anything on it. Someone is selling one on Ebay. Link: SMC Pentax-M 28mm F/1.7

Maybe they mean 50mm. (?)

It looks to me as M50/1.7 but the picture is so bad that eBay should warn the seller or remove the ad. One can not tell what is really for sale.

Those pictures are pretty bad but I can make out the 1:1.7 0mm. Can't see what's in front of the 0 though. So it's 100% it's not a 28mm lens.

I find it odd that the lens was shot through "glass" and the glare blurs the lens element and the lettering.

Smells like a scam if u ask me. U can see its an M series. Should be the 50mm f1.7 M. They didnt make f1.7 as anything else than 50mm

I saw that listing, too, and thought that it didn't smell so good. I would stay far, far away from the listing and the seller.
