Auto Tele Lentar 135mm 1:3.5

Anybody else have this lens? I did a bit of research but could only dig up the earlier preset version.
Found this nice little M42 mount lens at the local Goodwill for $10 with the original case, all in excellent condition.
I did some very informal test with it and it seems like a sweet lens.

Here are some images with comments.

Hey, those are some damn nice shots for a Lentar. I'm amazed! But that's not bokeh, is it? It looks more like reflections of something in the background.

I have a Tele-Lentar 200 4.5, and never used it because the reputation is so bad. But yours looks like a diamond in the rough.

Thanks Ira. I was pleasantly surprised when I got home with it and took a few pics. I wasn't expecting much for a $10 no-name M42 135mm.

I'm not sure what you mean about the bokeh. Isn't bokeh the out of focus background?

That's right. Smooth bokeh is prized. Jagged or polygonal or doughnut bokeh ain't.

I have two Super-Lentars, which one source says is "Tokina, same as Soligor". Mine are 21/3.8 and 25/3.5, both M42. One stops down and shoots nicely, one doesn't.
