It sort of depends on the user.  I don't have any problems shooting with
135mm lenses, but others do:  for that matter, I don't have problems with
focusing or framing with my 4/135 Elmar or Tele-Elmar, but, again, others
do.  Heck, I've even shot at 170mm with a 2X Tele-Extender on a 2/85 Sonnar
without a problem.  

It simply depends on what you want and need and are comfortable with.
