Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-A 35-70mm F4
so um... it's a bit like Vanilla Ice cream this lens.

I recently had good experience with a 75-150 M f4 and so went about looking for one of these, and well it's a fine lens sure, it's just not a "wow" lens.

At f4 my 40+yr old busted up Super Tak f3.5 is sharper, better corners, more contrast. At f4 the Super Tak is better in all those ways again.

At the longer end it's much the same, just ho hum. It's not to say this is a bad lens. it's just very vanilla?

I suppose that's what one should expect from a 80's zoom?
