Pricey star lenses tend to do better on all cameras. Of course, it's all relative. Some of the variable aperture lenses are quite good and if stopped down will perform nearly as well as the more expensive fixed aperture zooms. The DA 20-40, for example, is a terrific lens, as is the DA 16-85 and the DA 55-300 PLM (at least in the 55 to 150 range).



The SDM on the full-frame DFA lenses is newer and a lot better. It's the old SDM (from more than 15 years ago) that has such a reputation, particularly on the DA 17-70, the DA* 50-135, a0nd the old DA* 16-50. The main problem with the DFA FF lenses is that, other than the DFA 28-105, they're bigger, heavier, and more expensive than most of the DA glass.

Pentax K 28mm f/3.5 vs Pentax-M 28mm f/2.8 (later version) vs Pentax-M 28mm f/3.5

I would contend that ownership of the K 28 f3.5 would make ownership of the M 28 3.5 redundant. There may not be much difference between the lenses in resolution (pretty much true for all the vintage Pentax 28mm lenses), but in terms of color rendering, contrast, rendering of detail, and overall aesthetic qualities, the K 28/3.5 is the best of the f2.8 and f3.5 Pentax 28s. Nor would I believe it would be a good choice to replace an M 28/3.5 with the version 2 of the M 28/2.8. The claim to fame of the M 28/3.5 is better contrast than the f2.8 versions. Again, with these lenses, you have to avoid getting caught up in differences of resolution, which may exist but are too slight to be of any real practical significance. But the contrast and color rendering differences are noticeable, and that's what has largely determined which lenses are preferred by a majority of users.
