wide angles: Pentax SMC vs. Tamron Adaptall-2?

I'm curious if anyone knows just how well the Tamron Adaptall-2 wide primes such as the 24/2.5 and 28/2.5 stack up against the equivalent SMC-K, SMC-M or SMC-A Pentax versions. I own the Adaptall-2 24mm and the 28mm, and they seem like capable lenses. Any thoughts?

I also managed to snipe a SMC-A 35/2.8 with an old K1000 off the 'bay: here's hoping it's in decent shape (it's on it's way now). Anyone have any experience with this one?

EDIT: I'll repost this in the lens section. Sorry for the miscategorized post!
