I am assuming that the 28/3.5 M's premium price over its faster cousin from the same series is due to particularly good optical performance across the range. I've heard that a few of the K and M 3.5's were significantly better than the 2.8's in the same focal length.

The Takumar and K series were a pattern of increasing complexity - from a 7-6 design to a 7-7 design to finally an 8-7 design.

The M series was a drastic cutback in complexity across the board. The M 28/3.5 was a much simpler 6-6 design. Overall it's not as good as the K series or even the Takumars, but it's still simpler to design slower lenses and it's still a better overall performer than the M 28/2.8, which was a touch soft wide open and had a big flare problem.
