Bought this lens together with 7 other lenses for about 18 dollars. All lenses in very good/excellent condition. I was curious about the image quality of this lens and started to google ........ not much info. So had to do some shots myself. I was impresssed in many ways. The lens handles very nice and is well build. The colors are nice and vivid with very good micro-contrast. There was a little purple fringing wide open but was easy to controle with Lightroom. The bokeh is very pleaseing; soft and creamy and not disturbing. Contrast is good and the sharpness is very good right from f/3.5 with a little vignetting and excellent/amazing sharp (hole frame) from f/5.6 (no vignetting) and more till f/11, here diffraction starts and sharpness drops a little.
I also think that this lens is one of the best 135mm lenses I have. I have not compared them yet but I think it's as good as my Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 135 mm f/2.5 6-elements and the Carl Zeiss MC Sonnar electric 135mm f/3.5.
One thing is certain ........ this is a keeper.

Amazing little looker! It's handy, rich in contrast, nice in bokeh and very sharp!
Got this few days ago and today went testing it for the first time - I am very pleasingly surpriced by the image quality it made. I started wondering if it's now my no.1 in sharpness when comparing 135mm primes. I'm gonna have to do some tests...
Cons? well, the built-in lens hood is plastic and there only 5 aperture blades but they are beautifully curved, so it's not really an issue.
