Of course how much does the 135 magnify life? I assume that one is still
not seeing what the lens is...

I'm surprised - well, no I'm not - that no one here has pointed out that
while there are many people who have 135s for their rangefinder cameras,
the 135 is really a lens best used with an SLR....;-)

In the 7/2002 isuue of Fotografie re: 135mm lenses, it says "It is even 
possible to screw in two of these supplementary oculars and thus obtain
viewfinder with a total enlargement of 1.13 (0.72X1.25X1.25) a factor
than 1.0 means that the image in the viewfinder appears larger than when
directly with the unaided eye.
