Sharpness wide open

Color and contrast


500g (but balances pretty well)

No Manual-Auto switch on my copy, so the pin does not allow changing aperture on digital body w/o modifications:   


I've got an earlier SMC PENTAX 1:2.5/135 version (1975-1977) as opposed to smc PENTAX 1:2.5/135 (1977-1985). Both versions are considered the sharpest wide open 135mm lense ever made with excellent color reproduction. It surpasses Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 1:2.5 135mm (M42).
