I have the following on my repertoire
M 28mm 2.8, 35mm 2.8, 50mm 1.4, 50mm 2, 50mm 1.7, 135mm 3.5
K 55mm 1.8
I haven't been lucky enough to own the K28/f2, but I do own the M28/f2 and I wouldn't describe it as 'inferior', rather that the K is unusually exceptional.

I've used the Super Takumar 28/f3.5, M28/f2.8 and M28/f3.5 (and the G.Zuiko 28/f3.5) and the M28/f2 is a decent bit better than all of them.

Pentax MX, SMC-M28/f2 and Tmax400
