Out of these three, which lens is best? Has anyone used these? What kind of quality are they?

TAKUMAR F2.5 135MM
Quantaray F2.8 135mm
Chinar F2.8 135 mm
Tamron AF 90mm f2.8 SP Di

Any input would help lots.

Still new but willing to learn

Bill

there are 2 takumar 135 f2.5 the one that takes a 52mm filter and has takumar bayonet 135 written around the outside edge of the front of the barrel is a nice paper weight. it has no coatings. the tak that takes 58mm filters with the description on the front of the lens around the lens itself costs 3 times as much and is worth it.
me , as tom states get the tamron. sharp as a knife and a GREAT macro to boot. IMO

Actually the good one does not say Takumar at all. It is labeled as "smc Pentax". In K-mount lens, Takumar lens are budget lenses that don't have any SMC coating. In M42 screw mount lenses, Takumar and Super Takumar are good lenses.

Why these 4? And one of it is not even 135mm?

You have access to all or either one of them?

The most prestigious one of 135mm is A*135mm1.8 according to Stan bible which is really rare.
