Some lovely shots there and nice to be able to see the character of these lenses. Some I have, some are on my wish list! Five different Pentax 28mm lenses is impressive though.

Best wishes, Kris.

Thanks everybody!

@Kris
I like all the 28mm lenses, however there is lot's of difference among them.

My personal ranking:
1) SMC K 28/2.0
2) SMC K 28/3.5
3) SMC M 28/2.8
4) SMC M 28/3.5
5) SMC A 28/2.8

Cheers
Tobias

Interesting ranking there, Tobias. I have the M28/2.8, the A28/2.8 and the S-M-C Takumar 28/3.5. The last lens is my favourite in terms of sharpness and rendition, the A series gets used for convenience! I also have the Vivitar 28mm close focus lens (Kiron I think) but I don't use that as much as I thought I would when I got it. I have been on the look-out for the K series 28/3.5 but they seem quite unusual.

I do find 28mm a nice focal length on the Pentax APS sensors. It equates to 42mm I guess, which is pretty close to the iconic 43mm Ltd on film!

Best wishes, Kris.

yes, the SMC K 28/3.5 (same as the takumar) is the sharpest of mine too.

Check out yoshioko takinamis resolution tests of all SMC 28mm lenses. I can totally confirm the outcomes of his resolution tests.

Just noticed:
I made mistakes with the galleries SMC M 28/2.8 and M 28/3.5. Those two are not nicely orderd yet. Wink
