My bad. Thought it was film, not camera, you have used to shoot. But therefore even more surprised there is no PF, as in my experince PF is quite heavy in 85 and all those OOF highlights offer potential for fringing.
Almost no purple fringing with my copy of the M85. I tend to use my K85 more, but that is just because I tend to gravitate towards my K lenses out of habit.

The fringing on my M 85mm is more blue than purple but most of it's gone by f/2.8 and pretty-much all of it by f/3.5.

I say again that was my wide angle of choice on film for many, many years, and you certainly show it off to its best.

Thank you
Yeah, it's very nice, I use it at night and it's sharp even wide open.
I made a review last month... and it was a good occasion to browse the pictures I've taken with it... the thing that surprised me the most is how versatile it was - even though on APS-C it has the FoV of a normal lens, so there's that...

On film it was a terrific landscape lens. f/8 and be there thanks to the handy distance marker at f/8 for the hyperlocal distance.

Yup, it was called "snapshot setting" on the manual I still have it somewhere...

Have you done, or seen, a side-by-side comparison of these two? I have the M85, which I like a lot, but... you know... LBA.....

I roam in and out of this thread leaving the occasional comment. Suppose I should really post an image or two!

Over the next little while I'll run through samples from my, err, modest M series collection targeting images taken on the K-1 as full frame is what the M series was designed for.

I've not really used the M's much as yet on the K-1 so may have to pause from time to time and go out and take a few photos when I find I have APS-C but no full frame samples for some M lenses.

Let's start at the wide end with the M20/4 and work upwards from there.

I find my M20 not that sharp at distance so unsuited to the typical landscape shots where lots of detail is required for leaves and branches etc. It just lacks the sharpness for this. But for scenes where fine distant detail is not required and it's instead all about foreground and/or colours, the M20 produces the goods.

This image is a good example of where the M20 shines...

And one from the other side of the world closer to the home of Pentax Forums showing the M20 pushing out some ok star bursts (not generally a M series strength in my opinion)...

Couldn't help myself last night. Everybody needs a nifty fifty F1.4 at some point in their photographic life don't they? So a M50/1.4 will be joining the family in the next few days via Fleabay.

"The Grid"... taken on film... yes, film.
K2, M50/1.7 plus 1.4x-S (I like the 70mm focal length), Kodak Ektar.
I might have posted this before, but was recently working on it to remove a magenta case with some success.
