I recently purchased a chrome-finish 135mm f3.5 Canon Rangefinder lens M39 mount from eBay - £41! It was made in January 1953 and it's fantastic. It weighs half a ton and doesn't quite focus to infinity - 50m is about the furthest it'll focus, but I'm not complaining. It takes a great picture and looks good on the Nex5.

here it is:
