    Hi guys, I just ran across this and thought someone here might be interested.

  2. For that price I should just make an offer... it's just that Rangefinders aren't reallz good at long shooting. It's an extremely hard lens to focus. Even if you can wing a guess at what you're framing, you better shoot at least f/8 to get sufficient DOF in case you misfocus. I'm exaggerating a little, of course - but it is difficult.

    I have the 135 mm f/3.4 Apo-Telyt-M Asph and I haven't had any big problems focusing it on an M6 or M7. It is very sharp wide open, so I often use it wide open.

    Best,
    Helen

    I just got L39 135 f4.5 Hektor over the holidays for $60 at one of the few local shop near me, but have not developed any film shot with it yet
