SEIMAR-donnex 135mm F2.8. any info?

I scored one of these second hand through eBay. figured it'd be a cheap manual focus lens to play with. anyone know anything more about this lens cause google's only turning up auctions

I'll try and get some pics through it tomorrow, working camera not withstanding :P

I have a Seimar 135mm f2.8, but it doesn't say donnex on it anywhere.

Other than the basics - M42 mount and 10 bladed pre-set style aperature I don't have much information. I picked mine up cheap and it is somewhat soft wide open but quite usable. A long lens hood really helps to cut down glare and internal reflections.

Here are a couple of sample shots, the third one was at f2.8 but I can't recall the settings on the other two:

I'm not surprised that the lens was built in other mounts, the back section on mine looks like it is easily removable and possibly even interchangeable. When I get a chance I'll post a picture so you can compare it to yours.

Is this the same lens, or is there more than one version?
