After all the talk of the 135mm f/4 I decided to find one...
Feb 11, 2010

and I did find one that is really mint condition for the bargain price of £299. In days gone by I used to have the 135mm f/3.4 and it was a superb lens. Well, this old 135mm is as good as I remember the APO Telyt used to be.

I like being able to snap away and be further from things. My daughter in these looks very unkempt! Had I been closer she would have started tidying her hair. Had to use flash as light was very low.

These are crops and only have the default sharpening that is applied by C1 during raw conversion. Both taken wide open at f/4.

I really like this lens and am glad that there has been some activity here and on other forums concerning it versus the 135mm f/2.8 and 135mm f/3.4. The f/4 is a wonderful lens.
