Anybody got any thoughts on this lens?
Or have a very good one they’d care to part with?

Had one a few years back, the big plus is the constant aperture throughout the complete zoom range, but it needs stopping down to get best sharpness and it used to purple-fringe a lot (more than I was happy with fixing in PP).

I've come across a few but never bought as they're too big and heavy.

I've got both in the F series. The 28-135 is not up to much. The 35 - 105, on the other hand, is a gem.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
