Went to my local camera store and picked up two new lenses. The first being the Pentax smc A50mm 1.7. The second one is branded Sears 135mm 2.8 (pictures below). Not sure who really makesthe Sears lens, but I'm sure someone here canhelp with that info.

Paid a whopping $85usd for both. I cannotexpress in words how much I am impressed with bothofthem. I love the fact that the 135mm is all manual! Although it says auto on it (not sure whats auto about it). Forces you into thinking and learning, not just point and shoot like I was used to.

I would'venever thought that these lenses would prefer like they do, before finding this forum.

many of the sears, jc penny , etc are stellar performers. thing is that you just don't know. glad you are enjoying your new lenses. auto , doesn't mean a lot because all of the different format lenses were always ''auto'' at some time in their incarnations. just be aware of what you are purchasing.

I really like this water droplet shot. Very sharp and clear. I'm impressed with this lens. I might have to start searching on ebay...:?

I have a similar Sears 135MM 2.8, though clearly not the same model... the serial number on your lens starts 84, the serial number on mine starts 83, so mine is probably an older version... I piad about $10 for mine about 15 years ago.

When I shot film, I always got good results from this lens. Hopefully the same will be true from the new K-mount dSLR when I get that (still a couple of weeks off....). I like what I see from yours, so I'm certainly hopeful.
