Re: Need advice for 135mm Len

All versions of this lens have aperture settings. The 'A' setting, as far as I know, is not important with a Sony Nex.
I recommend the version 3 (Komine-made), otherwise version 1 (Kiron-made).

Should the magnification be insufficient, you can purchase an achromatic close-up lens.
Also, keep in mind that with almost 900g, the tripod will be a must.

I'm leaning towards vivitar series 1. I saw they have several versions there. Version 1& 2 do not have aperture setting.

Wat does that means.? They have no 'A' ring to adjust it manually.?
