Ooops, won 2 135mm m42 lens, which one should I keep?

I bid on 2 seperate auctions for 135mm f2.5 lenses last night. I won both!! First is a Vivitar 135mm f2.5, and the second is a Sigma 135mm f2.5, both in m42 screw mount, manual focus. Anyone have these or know anything about them? I got them pretty cheap, I'll try them both when I recieve them, and see which I like better. Right now I have the non-coated takumar 135mm f2.5. I have a hard time getting it focused on a consistant basis.
