The lens is covered in Dechert's CANON RANGEFINDER CAMERAS.  It's a neat,
though hefty, lens of pronounced optical qualities.  It is a clone of the
Carl Zeiss Jena 4/135 Sonnar of 1933.  The basic design carried over the
lamented 3.5/135 in the later Canon SLR line, a rather nice lens and quite a
capable optick.
