If one of you have a 135mm lens feel free to share some samples with us. This is the right place for it. Hey to everybody, this topic is for all of you who don't have the money for the XF 50-140 and for all who love the 135mm (203mm) focal length. It is inspired by this little test: http://forum.mflenses.com/twelve-2-8-135mm-lenses-compared-on-5dmkii-t39463.html and by the beautiful images of dv. http://ourphoto.org/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=6101 who also shared a similar topic: http://www.fuji-x-forum.com/topic/71-ebc-fujinon-t-135mm-25-m42/ I've owned some M42 135mm lenses. If you're ever researching for such a lens there are at least three you can't ignore. 1 - Tair 11A 135mm f/2.8 with 20!!! aperture blades, 150-250 €. I've never tried the Tair because I read that it isn't as good as it seems. Just the Bokeh shall be gorgeous! 2 - Fujinon EBC 135mm f/2.5 with 6 aperture blades, 250-350 € 3 - Pentacon 135mm f/2.8 with 15 aperture blades, 40-100 € I've also owned a Fujinon 135mm f/3.5 M42. Good and compact lens for about 30 €. And I've owned a PORST Tele MC Auto D 135mm f/2.8 M42. Many CAs for about 20 €. Lens 2 and 3 I still own. I will compare them now side by side. Figure out which you like more. I do love both lenses very much and will keep them. I did some test shots with my beloved X-E2. I wanted to compare sharpness, colour, contrast and bokeh. All shots are taken on a tripod at ISO200. WB was set to auto (missed to set it manually). I set the focus when lens was open wide and then I stoped down. Didn't use focus peaking (because I don't trust it). All pics are SOOC jpegs with default settings except NR. NR was -2. Subject distance: 3m to the clown and about 13-15m to the background. Something else? Mmmmh... I think that's all. Hope you like it. Here's a link to the Flickr set: https://www.flickr.com/gp/93978937@N07/3M354q. For further questions feel free to ask! At the following pics the focus was set on the outline of the right eye.
