Re: What manual focus 135mm f2.8 do you have?

To the OP:  You'll see that there are almost as many favorite 135's as there are posters.  Why?  It was a very easy focal length and speed to design while typically giving very good picture quality and true tele 'reach.'    It was the pre-zoom standard tele in the old classic prime triad of 28, 50, and 135.  My favorite:  135 f2 C/D Soligor.  2nd:  135 f2.3  Vivitar Series 1.  It is interesting too that nobody has mentioned the 135 2.8 Nikkor so I'll do so.  You really can do well with pretty much any of these.
