    I am looking at maybe getting a screwmount Super Tak 135, and am trying to decide between the f/2.5 and 3.5. I've had the 3.5. It was fine, especially stopped one click to 4.0. The extra speed on the 2.5 would be nice, and a more standard filter width (58mm) but I don't know much about the optical characteristics of that lens.

    Anyone ever compare these two, either on Pentax cameras or especially adapted to m43?

    I like my Preset Takumar 135mm f/3.5. The optics is 5/4, different from the Super-Tak 4/4.

    If you don't need that extra stop, the S-M-C 135/3.5 is very nice and small.

    The S-M-C Tak 105/2.8 is also a very nice lens.
