Hi Simon,

If you are interested in a new 1:4/135 (last model pre 3.4-APO), you may
wish to give http://www.leicabeimeister.com/ a try; I bought one for an
excellent price and I'm very happy with it.

Please let me know if you need any further info. - And no, I do not work for
these guys or have any business with them apart from being a happy
occasional customer ;-)

Best regards,
	Michael
