I own one and can say that it ranks as one of the most highly regarded 135mm lenses in the Pentax stable. A very lovely piece of Multi-coated glass rendering delicious colors and bokeh.

Yes, indeed. And, interestingly, the K 135/2.5 shares the same 6-elements-in-6-groups design with two other highly regarded telephoto lenses -

K 135/2.5


K 200/2.5


A* 200/2.8


Of course, the newer A* 200/2.8 does use ED glass for a couple of elements, but the similarites are, I think, striking.

And, I should also point out that the SMC K 135/2.5 is ~not~ the same lens as the non-SMC, 4-element-in-4-groups "Takumar 135/2.5 [Bayonet]" consumer lens. On the contrary, the SMC K 135/2.5, such as being sold here, is certainly one of the best Pentax lenses.

Yes, indeed -- thanks for reminding me. ("The mind is a terrible thing to waste"...)

Wow - I had no idea the 135/2.5 was so similar to the K200/2.5 and A*200/2.8. Thanks guys for the comparisons.
