Yes, M 35/2 will be slightly smaller than the Takumar. I preferred the K version over the M and now the Takumar may take over. I think it is great these (almost) 40 year old lenses are so good.

Seamuis, you are absolutely right, the size is of no real importance. I just like the feel better of the all metal lenses and in the case of the Takumar 35/2 and the K 35/2, the Takumar is quite a bit smaller overall and I prefer that. Very subjective !

subjective indeed, so you will not mind me saying I prefer the older auto-takumars to the later takumars. even the crazy big and heavy auto-takumar 35mm 2.3, even if it is pretty terrible wide open. I currently only have two film bodies (made a huge parting movement with most of my collected pentax equipment) an SV and a 6x7. my 35mm lens lineup consists of the Auto-Takumar 35mm 2.3 and 3.5, the Auto 55mm 2 and 1.8 'zebra', the Auto 85mm 1.8 and the Auto 105mm 2.8. nothing is better or more beautiful than these early Takumars.
