    Hello again,

    just an another question - on the same shelf with Sigma I noticed an M42 Beroflex 135/2.8, very cheap - about $25 or something. I don't know anything about Beroflex - but again, the lens makes a very good impression by its looks and glass quality. Do you know anything what was the Beroflex company, and what in particular is this lens? I love fast 135 lenses for portraits, maybe this one will enhance my collection?

    Cheers,
    Zhenya

    No idea but 135mm F/2.8 in the M42 aren't exactly expensive. I forget what I paid for my Mamiya but it might have been less then $25. To be honest $25 is higher then I'd consider paying for a 135mm unless I knew the maker. You'll find a lot of 135mm if you keep your eyes open.
