None of these have a particularly good reputation (by Pentax standards), but I can't comment on image quality as I haven't used them.
Only the very first version of the Takumar 28/3.5 is the 7/6 formula with 58mm filter thread.
The 2nd version Super-Takumar and the Super-Multi-Coated Takumar version are both 7/7 with 49mm filter thread.

In my experience, the Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 28/3.5 is an excellent lens.
