Very nice! I have the same lens from the same time period as you and just started using it over the past several months on my K-3II. I really like it for short to medium range shots, and it is a joy to use. I think it is a very underrated lens.

It kind of surprised me also, I'm definitely going to shoot some raw images with it and once I master rawtherappe (nearly there) I will post some more from this lens.

"Only" (!) a jpeg on a K70. It does very well. The fine hairs on the underside of the flower casing show how sharp it is.
