... I got an SMC-M 28mm f/2.8 instead off ebay for about 4% of the price

Here are some samples form its first outing this morning into the untamed recesses of a rather neglected suburban back garden... all taken on a K7 at ISO 400 - 640 using f/4 - f/5.6 on the lens.

it's a lovely little lens - very compact (almost like a pancake), well built, and sharp. The close focus (1 foot) is handy too. I already have this FL length covered on my Tamron 28-75 but using these MF primes is a quite different experience: makes you stop, think and plan a bit more.

Best wishes
