Soligor (Tokina) C/D P f/2 28mm M42

I have a special liking for the line of lenses designed (about 1970) and manufactured by Tokina for Soligor under the common definition of C/D P.
These lenses were never made in PK mount, so the only option for Pentax users is the M42 version.
I have three members of the family (2/28mm, 2/135mm and 2.8/200mm). There were two more (2.8/55mm macro and 2/35mm) at the right price, plus another lens (2.8/100mm macro) that does not sport the red P, but is built by Tokina and looks exactly like all the others.

I just posted three pics on an existing thread of the Lens Sample Photo Archive dedicated to the 2/135mm.
Then I realised the there is no thread dealing with the second most desirable optic of the group, the Soligor C/D P f/2 28mm.
So I started this new thread
Unfortunately these pictures, unlike those shot with the 135mm, don't show the borders of the image, cause I used an APS-C camera (Pentax K-01).
Maybe I will add a few more pics soon, all shot with the K-1.
In the meantime, here are the first three images:

All wide open, with rather high ISO.
Considering the age of the project, colours and sharpness are quite impressive.
As with all the others I tried, bokeh is definitely nice.
I found this characteristic to be a constant with all C/D P lenses.

Btw, this is how the 28mm looks:
