Sharpness: 10    Aberrations: 9    Bokeh: 10    Handling: 8    Value: 10   

Id bought it after reading this test:
http://forum.mflenses.com/twelve-2-8-135mm-lenses-compared-on-5dmkii-t39463.html
It is very sharp and it has better bokeh than my Pentacon 135/2,8 with 15 blades apreture. But ther were one problem! Id to buy Leitax adapter and its rather expensive with add sending and custom.

Pros: Sharp, colors
Cons:

Whenever I start shooting with this lens I wonder why I'm not using as often as I could or should.

Great color rendering, sharp, good built-in hood, perfectly usable at 2.8 on my K30.

Would be awesome with a shorter minimum focus distance.

Pros: sharp, beautiful bokeh
Cons: it is Contax/Yashica mount

There was the time when I had four 135mm lenses: Contax Sonnar 135/2.8, Leica 135/2.8, Pentax K 135/2.5 and Meyer 135/2.8. I compared them and decided to stay with Sonnar, which was the better in any aspect from all other. This lens has beautiful, creamy bokeh. It is sharp enough at f2.8 and very sharp at f4. Color and contrast rendition is exceptional. Lens has build-in hood - nice feature. Overall very good 135mm lens. Only drawback for Pentax user is conversion from Contax to K mount.


It is great portrait lens


sharp and with creamy bokeh
