Default Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 135mm f/3.5 Red MC

Scenes are hand held shots at sundown and are as the lighting appeared at the time. This is a very sharp contrasty lens. I'll shoot more later with bright sunlight. No sharpening in PP.

I have this one BD but I have to say I believe the S-M-C Tak 135/3.5 is sharper and renders a little better bokeh to my eyes. Must do a side-by-side test.

I had the Super Tak 135 but did not like the color rendition. Very neutral. Which didn't appeal to me as well as the saturated colors of the CZJ's.

Nice shots bigdawg!

I have that lens too and I love it. Unfortunatly I dont get to use it as often as I should. Its an odd focal length for me. Either I go shorter or much longer.
I also have the Flek 35/2.4 but mine is broken

Good show.
Is it likely that lens costs as much as all your older lenses collection combined?
