Very Nice - just shows that one of the cheapest Pentax lenses (they often sell for a pittance) is capable of quality results

+1 for this.
Does anyone REALLY need more than a M 28mm f/2.8, M 50mm f/1.7 and M 135mm f/3.5? For sub-100 (and often a lot less than 100), it's a solid line-up that covers most angles.

Agreed, in the film era, those were the only 3 lenses I owned - and I still use them all today

Another gem of a photo captured with a legacy gem lens. Justification for my hobby of collecting older glass and the great satisfaction that comes with using it. Can't recommend it enough.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Thanks for your kind words all of you. This lens is one of those recently found in my cupboard, gave it a good clean and that's the result. The others will soon put in an appearance I hope as they all appear to be clean and fungal free. What I take from this is, that using "old" glass is it slows you down and makes you think more about what you are doing.

May be an old M series lens but loads of life in them when they produce images as good as this!

This business of having to have the latest whizz bang in order to get top results is a nonsense. As LennyBloke kicked off, this is a disregarded cheapo - but only because it is old. This, and other people's offerings prove their worth time and again.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

I used a M135 f/3.5 for testing IQ on my KP and K1, it's such a good, sharp lens and easy to focus too.
