Hello Frank,

The Hektor is the cheapest but also the quality is not very good. The 
Elmar I didn't own so I can't comment on that one.
But the Tele-elmar is an awesome lens for the money. Rumours go that it 
is near apo quality. Only thing I know is that it gives very nice images 
and is fully usable at full aperture.

Try to find a late model 135 mm, f3.5 Canon lens. This is an excellent, well 
constructed screw thread optic that will mount on the M cameras with a 35 mm 
adaptor flange. On the M3 the adaptor triggers the 135 mm frame. I have had 
very good results with mine.
