M120 vs FA135

Sorry guys,

I know I'm getting kind of boring, but I find the experience of members here on the forums invaluable.
So, I have FA135. Very good lens indeed, nice and sharp, contrasty, bit of PF and fast AF. Built quality is good, and MF is OKish...
If I could get my money back and the IQ would be comparable, I perhaps wouldn't mind swapping.
I can get minty M series 120/2.8 for 225.
What do you think?

FA 135 would be my choice.

Thanks J!
I know you've probably tried them all so your opinion definitely counts.

I cannot comment on the FA , but I do have the M120 2.8 and it is a lovely lens. The price seems way too high though. I got mine two years ago in very good condition for 100
