Add to this list:

Pentax SMC K 28mm f2

Nicknamed "the Hollywood" this Zeiss Distagon certainly fits the bill for "legendary."

Replaced by the Pentax M 28 f2.0 that was inspired by the Olympus 28mm 2.0 by Toru Fujii.

No photographer's gear list is complete without the printer mentioned !

I do have the 28/2.0 A, which is similar to the M version. It is very good in the center, but the edges are weak until f/4.0 and really good at f/5.6.

Results very similar to the Nikon 28/2.0 AIs at infinity (and the Pentax is a lot lighter!).

I didn't test seriously at close distance though. Do you know if it is a floating element design? Doesn't look like it when I turn the focusing ring, but it is hard to tell.
