Unfortunately I do not. Normally I delete photos I don't like, if I have a preferred similar one. Technically the Tamron caught everything I asked it to. The same subject keeper ratio was dramatically higher for the M100. Mostly because it caught that something which made me want to take the shot in the first place. Of course that could have been the focal length difference, but I suspect it was the combination of the bokah and possibly pentax coatings.

Edit: I went back and reposted this photo without using the PS elements quick fix settings. I usually use it to make up for metering inaccuracies and to add some contrast, but this shot doesn't need it so much.

interesting architectural shots with a 135mm lens!

Unfortunately I could not get myself to love the M 135mm, and have just sold it to a friend

I still got my M 28mm F/3.5, M 85mm F/2, M 50mm F/1.7, and M 50mm F/2 though

Thanks Yeatzee
I was shooting from across from Willamette River and the focal length works out really well for these two shots. I only have two other M lenes, 50mm f1.7 and 200mm f4. Would love to have the 85mm f2!

I had the 200mm F/4 a while ago. Neat lens, but I used the DA 55-300mm way more often so I sold it.

The M 85mm F/2 will go to the grave with me, like I've said atleast 5 times on this forum already Its worth every penny I spent on it

M 50 f1.7

Here is the M50 1.7 wide open--Hobble Bush, from a NH forest. I enjoy being able to get plenty fast enough shutter speeds, at iso 100, in the dark forests sometimes.

I just bought an M100 2.8 listed on eby as like new and excellent-plus and it arrived as advertised except it is missing the half dome plastic alignment button. I can't imagine it would cause any image impact, but could this piece be added back from a donor with glue or something? Otherwise I love this new old lens.

M100 f2.8

good shot need to be quote..

Yet more concert shots from the M100/2.8 & M135/3.5. As much as I keep going back and forth between these focal lengths, I still can see an M120/2.8 in my future - it plus the DA70 would make a fabulous concert combo, I think. The 120's seem to have become harder to find in the last year or so, though.

M100/2.8:





M135/3.5:

I haven't posted much in the M Club for a while. Here's one of an Eastern Kingbird I managed this morning:
