I'm an M user 95% of the time. When I finally found a 'Flex so cheapo I 
couldn't resist it, I figured the lenses to get were those which either 
weren't available, or didn't make sense on the M system.
So I got me a 15mm/3.5 Super Takumar that someone had had converted to R 
mount (cheap 'cos it was non standard), a 60mm Macro (going cheap with a 
little fungus), and a 400mm/6.3 Telyt which had sufferred a blow (cheap 
again). I'll also consider a PC lens as and when I see one at a bargain 
Oh, there's also a zoom lens from Sigma, though I hardly ever put that on...

Need lens advice - Choice between 90 & 135 R.

Hi there.  I'm looking for a great all around lens for my R4s.  I use an M6
and have an R4s that I need a lens for.  I've never been the biggest fan of
the 50mm,  so I'm looking on some advice for a great, sharp lens that I can
find that won't cost me an arm and a leg.  After seeing some posts on the
LUG,  I've taken notice to the 135 f2.8 and the prices have been
great...around $375.00.  Now, the '90's are a bit more.  I like to shoot
mostly man-on-the-street stuff.  Let me know some recommendations.  There's
a camera show Sunday and I'd love to go hunting.
