I think a better comparison would be between the 135 f4 Tele Elmar and the
Apo. The 135 2.8 never achieved the quality level of the  Tele Elmar. It
produces just terrific images at full aperture, but the quality of the Apo
is staggering. The first time I saw transparencies on the light box I found
them almost shocking, they had soooo much clarity and detail.
