Q: Which 135 screw mount takumar for mirrorless

Was wondering if anyone can recommend:

I have an Olympus OMD and would like to use a screw-mount Takumar 135 for landscape shooting and people candids. I've have the 135/3.5 before, and it was pretty good. Was going to get that one, but I read about the 135/2.5.

Anyone used these on a new, digital mirrorless system, and could you recommend one over the other?

The 135/2.5 comes in two versions. The second version is excellent, but the first version is no slouch. I replaced my (version 2) with the Canon FD 135/2. I don't think it's a better lens, but I have a lot of FD stuff. The Takumar 135/2.5 is one of the best lenses I've ever had/used.

We have a lens database with user reviews for most Pentax lenses and many third party M42/K lenses.
