    This is Pentax's Super version of the Takumar 28mm f/3.5. It's physically different than the Super-Multi-Coated version. The older model is significantly larger and heavier. Also utilizes a 58mm dia. filter instead of 49mm. The optical formula is supposedly identical.

    This wide angle lens performs very well for shooting short distances. Sharp, CA and distortion are nil.
    Suffers though when long distances like landscapes are the goal. Refraction is noticeable.
