With the 'user' option you don't need group either.

You could use autofs to mount with group rwx when someone from that group 
accesses (not sure how autofs allows limiting this, but you could put it 
in a subdir that's chmod 0750).

This will be fixed so that smbfs is mounted like any other linux
filesystem, directly by mount, bringing the same rules with it. Code is
not really finished yet.
