Guaging from tripod-mounted comparisons of my 135/4 in the focussing
mount on a Viso II (tripod secured to the mirror box) vs. the lens
mounted to the body but cantilevered off the M's offset tripod bush, it
is a pity Leica did not revert to putting the tripod bush on the 135's
lens barrel.  I have an LTM Hektor and an early M-mount Elmar, both of
which have a tripod bush, and find that it is a much more stable
