one of the lenses i saw on my pawn trip was a Hanimex screw mount f3.5
i think it was a 135mm, i couldnt see it on the lens anywhere
i took a few test
it seems to be an ok lens
this is the full frame i think the f stop was around 5.6

centre crop at 100%

bottom middle

bottom right corner

and one inside the shop i imagine the f stop was 3.5

does any one know anything about these lenses ?

Hmm, the Pentax-M 135 f3.5 lenses go for very cheap prices at pawn shops and flea markets these days, I think that would be a better choice.

There's also quite a few third party K mount 135mm lenses out there...

Unless it's a Zeiss or a Takumar, I personally wouldn't look at a 135mm screw mount lens.

Hanimex used to a cheap brand in Australia.

I think basically they were importers that had stuff made for their brand.

There are much better 135mm screw mount and k mount lenses about at very cheap prices, especially on ebay.

I just picked up a Vivitar 135mm 2.8 on ebay for 25 bucks. Should be here soon. I have a Haminex 28mm 2.8 lens, I like it so far.
