New Mitakon Zhongyi F2.8 135mm or ASAHI TAKUMAR K (BAYONET) MOUNT 135MM F/2.5

Looking for a 135mm. ( limited to shopping at amazon.) im looking at either a
ASAHI TAKUMAR K (BAYONET) MOUNT 135MM F/2.5 for about $90

or a New

Mitakon Zhongyi F2.8 135mm for about $170

which one do you think would yield the best IQ?

Neither: I believe I just saw a SMC (K) 135mm f2.5 at KEH for about $180. (EX). That is IMHO one of the best lenses.

The Takumar is not that highly regarded; not famiiar with the Mitakon.

Can't you get your other 135 (the one that does not focus to infinity) fixed for those 90 dollars?
