Can anyone confirm that "MIN" on a Soligor mount means Minolta SR (aka "MC"/"MD) mount?

Komine made (serial number starts with 28) Vivitar Auto Telephoto 135mm F2.8 lens. It differs from the "regular" Vivitar 135mm by having 5 lens elements instead of the normal 4, has 8 aperture blades instead of 6, and has a milled focus ring. It is made in many different mounts and is relatively affordable.

If you want to go farther up the price range, Carl Zeiss Jena DDR Sonnar 135mm F3.5. It is not as fast at F3.5, but its rendering is better and less chromatic aberrations. They have a m42 mount version which can be adapted to Canon EF.

Canon FDn 135mm F2.8 is also very good, but cannot be adapted to Canon EF without a adapter with optics.

I don't think any will be sharper than the Macro Tokina 90mm. The Tokina (and other macro lenses) are designed for maximum sharpness since its for macro photography.
