I had these 2 lenses for couple of years, and have to get rid one of them.

The reason is simple, not enough room in my bag.

I mostly use the M version, more by habit than for any rational reason.

I did not notice hugh IQ difference, A seams a little lighter, both are in mint conditions.

Current usage are K10d and K-01 (photo and movie).

Would you have advices or opinions?

I have both as well. I hate the m's focusing ring compared to my A version. I also prefer the build quality of the A (don't know if my copy is just not so good).

I would sell the M
