Which is the best? Comparison of three manual 135mm lenses at f/2.8
1

Comparison of following manual 135mm lenses at f/2.8:

Note 1: Same camera on tripod; out-of-camera-jpegs; no PP; no filter on lenses; hood on all lenses.

Note 2: I tested only at f/2.8 because both my Hanimar’s are stuck at f/2.8 :-D. One because I didn’t use for almost a decade, and the other because I opened it once for cleaning the optics but messed up the aperture while reassembling ..lol

Note 3: my copy of Pentax-A 135mm f/2.8 has some scratches on one side of the rear glass element ☹ See condition here .

SMC Pentax-A 135mm f/2.8

SMC Pentax-A 135mm f/2.8

Hanimar Auto Lens 135mm f/2.8 (made in Korea; m42 mount)

Hanimar Auto “S” 135mm f/2.8 (made in japan; m42 mount )
