There isn't an M series version of the f1.2 design. I think you will find that it is the earlier K series lens that appears on your brochure although of course Pentax never referred to their first series of K bayonet mount lenses as K series. The 135-600 zoom is also the earlier "K" series rather than an M.

What is the difference between M series and earlier K series since they are both SMC (super multi coat) and neither have any electronics in them? I understand the A series has the ability to allow the camera to electronically set the aperture on the green "A" mark (I have one of those). I can't find any substantial difference between M and the earlier K (which they just leave off the M when they list it I've noticed.

Cheers.
