Good to see this lens making an appearance - at least in one of it's guises

This thread presently exhibits the K version

I had the M version
Used to be a favorite of mine until it got stolen (along with a Z1-P and associated kit 28-80mm lens)
Had bought it together with an MX and 50mm F1.7 too many years ago to remember (30!) - still got the camera and 50mm (in fact 2 of each)

Light, compact, virtually indestructible (I took it mountaineering in all weathers), and, I think, good quality (you guys will tell me if I'm wrong on that point)
Many happy days I had with it

I'll try to search some (scanned and photoshopped) photo examples and post them to this thread when I have access to the drive they're on


P.S. Being trying to find a second hand good example for a couple of years, but totally failed

I never use the M version of this lens, but I can confirm that the K120 is super sharp.

The K135/2.5 is too big/heavy, K135/3.5 is a bit slower, but the size and weight of this lens is just perfect.
