I bought a 135/4 Tele-Elmar used for the same reason.  Optical quality is
very high, and you can get them for around $500 used.  39mm filter size,


> I got the 135 for exactly the same reason you mention - I'm just not
carrying my Nikon any more, so I wanted a lens to replace the 180 I used to
use.  The 135/3.4 is an amazing lens, and I find it quite usable on both the
.72 and .85 bodies.  I certainly use it much less than my other lenses, but
it does the job.  I love the 75, and the 135 provides a nice extra bit of
reach over it.
