Assuming that you are referring to the 135mm Apo Telyt, I can only say that this
is an awesome lens. The sharpness, color rendition, everything is just
incredible. I was considering selling mine this summer to finance some other
Leica purchases, but after coming back from a vacation in Israel and seeing the
slides I had shot with it there, I just could not bring myself to sell it. If you
are a fan of this focal length, you should definitely consider upgrading.
