Is it a native K mount or is it a T mount lens with a K mount on it? There weren't a lot of 135mm f3.5 lenses made by third parties, most were f2.8, the ones I have seen have all been T mount.

If you show us some photos of it someone might be able to identify it.. for now I guess it will be an old T2 lens with T2 -> PK mount adapter attached --manntax

Well, "dixi" I found a few references to (135/2.8), but they are all, "Anybody heard of dixi?"

The name is probably related to a store somewhere, likely one that is long gone and forgotten. Any shop could get custom branded lenses back then, the manufacturers would just do a run of name rings and stick them on whatever lenses you wanted.

Chances are you'll find it to be similar to a Vivitar or Soligor lens from the time, which could lead to identifying who actually made it.
