If this lens is so wonderful, why do you want to sell it?

I happen to think that this lens is not very useful when used directly on
the M camera, because the viewfinder image is so small. However, it is a
good lens and it can also be used on the Visoflex.

Besides, it is silver and better-looking than the black-chrome 135mm
