The 135mm f2.8 cost MORE than the M4?!? Hey y'all, I've got a really nice 
135mm f2.8 I'll trade for an M4 body. Don't worry if your M4 has a few dings. 
It's OK. And if a lot of you guys want to take me up on my offer I'm sure I 
can come up with all the 135mm lenses I need to meet the demand . . .
