topgun/choen,

Did u find your M135 f3.5 special? I never really use 135mm len but the M-135mm f3.5 I have is so special that I cannot let it unmount on my camera. It is very sharp and smooth bokeh even wide open the performance is very good. Very 3D look, very special. I really love it so much, amazing.

Aye. it's in a class of it's own. You should try it on film, if you haven't.

Hey, good to hear that. Just got one for myself, like new condition (don't know how the pre-owner kept an old lens like this, might never used it ;) )

Only tried it on my *istDs, didn't get chance to see the pic yet. But guess I'll love it as much as you guys do :D

Cheers!

Thanks. Actually my wife loves the results of the lens (both the lens and the pics taken with it) too ;) It'll be a keeper to me I guess.

Thanks. Just hope I'd have more time to shoot at her with the lens.

Cheers!

The more I use the SMC-M 135mm f3.5, the more I'm amazed even wide open.

Hi guys,

I`m first time at Your page. What do You think about
PENTAX 135mm 1:2,5 TAKUMAR,

I would like to buy it for my revueflex ac2 camera and use it as portrait-lens.
So I don`t have as much money for SMC pentax. Would You recommend my this lens? Thanks a lot

Greetings from Poland, willi
