K1 with SMC M 3.5/135. First time I've used this lens today on the K1. I am excited and surprised by the result!
I am not surprised actually. i have always found this to be a very good lens on digital. I think perhaps the fact that it is a very common lens tends to put people off. But it is very sharp and renders colours nicely.

Lovely photo and I agree about the M135. Maybe we’ll see more ‘Today’s Photos’ with 135’s the wat the 200’s have started coming back.

K1 using a Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 (8 element Planar Killer) Lens; Image shot at 1.4

Pictured is my 50mm f/1.2, which is also an incredible lens; (not sure which is better, perhaps I'll never know)

Durf, one could make the joke that it is surprising that you were able to keep that much money after buying that lens. But I won't be the one that makes that joke. :-)

This shot is nothing special, but it shows how sharp is the old Pentax-FA f/3.2-4.5 28-105mm AL [IF].
To shoot at f/8, 1/100sec the sensitivity was brought up to 6400 ISO. The image is too grainy. I should have underexposed and set the limit to at least 3200 ISO.



Same lens, shot freehand at 1/4sec wide open. It shows... if you pixel peep the original. A tripod would have prevented camera shake
I post this picture anyway cause it shows that this lens also has good resistance to flare.

One of the best vintage fifties.
The average price has risen a lot recently, but it is still worth any cent.
Most Meyer Prim* lenses are bokeh marvels. The Primoplan has something more, the rendering is really amazing without any sacrifice in sharpness.
I didn't use it as much as I should have done, though enough to make it one of my most loved M42 lenses.
It's a pity it seems not as popular as other vintage lenses among the Pentax users community.
I would be happy to see more pictures posted on this forum, cause few optics have such distinct "personality".
Your picture is a very nice example of the beautiful, mellow results that can be achieved using this old lens wide open.
Barely stopped down it works well as a portrait lens, sharp enough and with a nice rendering of out of focus areas.
Here is an example:



And another:
