Shot with a 135mm f3.5 Canon LTM (Leica Thread Mount) lens at f3.5

I know of no 135mm lens more compatible (size-wise) and sharper than the latest (black) version of this classic rangefinder lens. They occasionally come up on eBay. Longer than 135mm is pretty hard to hand-hold at slow speeds - this isn't as sharp as it could be because of being hand-held.
