good comparsion dgaies, the 100 and 135 are on my lba list, do you have any lens comparison shots including the DA*55 ?
I don't have anything with the 55 uploaded anywhere and I'm currently entering the 8th hour of what should have been a 6 hour car ride otherwise I'd take a comparison shot for you Anyway, I'd be glad to take one when I get back, but that won't be for several days. As I recall, the 55 is a little shorter and wider than the 100 and 135 pictured above, but both taller and wider than the 77.

Edit: found this shot. No 100 nor 135, but it has the 55 and 77 in the same shot so I thought it might help combined with the previous shot I posted.

Very old ISCO Göttingen 135mm f3.5

Heres my smallest tele and possibly also the sharpest wide open.

I placed it amongst a bunch of other "normal" 135mm's
I have a chinese m42 to PK adapter on mine and without it theres a severe light leakage thru the mount. It is a very sharp lens and has 18 blades.
But.
The preset settings sits on the focus ring so when you change the aperture you will most likely also change the focus ! ... lol
Its still realy fun to use. i did some research when I got it and learned that it was most likely made in the late 30's. Possibly 1937-38

I dont think anyone apart from me and a few others really like to use these old ones but I thougt I should put it up for display anyways.

Sorry for the image IQ... Wasnt really paying attention...

Sure would be nice to see that next to the M135/3.5, though. Hard to tell from those shots how it would compare, except of course for it's odd shape.

Perfect! Looks to be about 1/4" longer than but maybe 1/8" less wide than the "M" at the front. How about weight? The "M" comes in at about 275g, not include caps but including the built-in hood.

I would estimate its weight to between 220 and 240.
It weighs considerably less then my DA 10-17

Yes, there we go people are getting the whole "small" thing now! I'm going to see if I can get ahold of one of these minuscule wonders for myself.

Unfortunately, though it is over 170mm; it's not adaptable to K-mount...

It's a pretty strange design, instead of getting shorter its focal length actually gets Longer when you get closer!

So of course I measured it at MFD (what man wouldn't?)

OK, cute - but before someone gets carried away and someone else gets offended, maybe we can veer back on topic...
