Well I haven't posted in quite a while and have just skimmed through different thematic/lens threads, wondering where to put up a few images. I guess this thread makes the most sense, as I've been shooting M's exclusively ever since... a great big while!

A few from the 28 f3.5:

First, two of my eldest daughter:





Next, a self-portrait:



I very much like the 28 3.5's out of focus rendering and coulours, and prefer using it up close (on a K-01). I had to fix mine (the aperture lever inside the lens was wobbly, had to tighten it - a rather harrowing experience for me )

And here are three from the 35 f2.8 which has been glued to the K-01 for the past month or two. I find it lacks a bit character-wise, but is still a decent lens. 7mm difference from the 28, but a very different feeling fov. I think 30mm would be the best compromise for me - that will put me in the K thread if I find one at a decent price!

My younger daughter:



A stray cat:



And a bird on a wire:

I'm back from my trip to the north-east of Spain and have quite a few M shots, mainly from the 35mm f/2. Here's a quick selection.

SMC Pentax M 40mm f/2.8 stopped down to f/4
The 5 blades are clearly noticeable at the shape of the out-of-focus sun.

I haven't had time to play with 28 for months due to punch of new lenses and single in challenges, but your shot got me to put it on camera.

A little snowfall made neighborhood beautiful last night. M28/3.5:

Yesterday I was out testing my two copies of the M 50mm f/1.4 to see if one is sharper than the other before selling off one of them. I didn't find any differences in sharpness but I did find that with the one I more recently acquired I got more in-focus shots, as if the lens works better with the K3's focus confirmation. All the testing was done wide open.

I was testing an A 50mm f/1.7 at the same time and the difference in contrast was very clear, with the A being notably superior.
