More-than-good short tele lenses pk mount?

Hello, I have taken up photography after 10 years, and as a recent and happy owner of a LX, coming with a 55/1,8 SMC , I want to find one or two short tele lenses to make the equipment more complete. My idea was, as I used to enjoy the 85:s in the old days, to buy a SMC 85 1;8, but they seem scarce and expensive, so far. What about 100/2,8 or 105/2,8, and then 135/2,5? Grateful for any advice, especially concerning 85/100/105.
Thanks to all you people who contribute to this valuable and enjoyable site, Robert

Kerrow, I will take advantage of this thread to ask for your opinion about the K135/2.5
I am tempted but I havenīt found a copy at the right price for me. I do enjoy my M135/3.5 but I usually stop it down a bit becouse wide open performance is worse than my F80-200.

I'm not familiar at all with this lens so it would be unfair for me to comment, I use a different 135 mm.
