Nice work!

I was surprised to see there are only two reviews on this site for that lens. Rare beast, I guess.

One note...I believe that is the Pentax-M 28/2.8 on the right.

I don't own a copy of the M 28/2.8....

And the shoot out winner gets…………..chocolate coated cookies.

I’m still trying to figure out what you are doing with all these cookies

How snappy is the aperture? My Kiron 24 and 28 mm lenses are all fouled with oil.

the Standardized Measuring Units (SMU's) do eventually get eaten, but not as quickly as you might think - I'll eat a couple after this shoot and the rest go back in the fridge....

aperture on this lens is snappy - no oil on the blades at all; I tried to stay away from the Kiron-built models for that reason alone...
