Great lens, crisp, not to hard to focus with EVF. Have not tried it in mountains as I have planed yet but works well so far for a prime that is needed at this length. Keep in mind that the minimal focus distance 5' which is not a problem depending on what one wants.

Just another great Leica lens. Mechanically and optically it is phenomenal. Not sure if I like its overall performance better than the previous version. The older version only cost me $250 and its bokeh is more pleasing to me.

This is a wonderfully sharp and clear lens. It is relatively small compared to most lenses of this focal length. Focusing with the rangefinder alone will yield consistently disappointing results. Use of an EVF with this lens is highly recommended.

focus is cumbersome. No tab, lots of distance to rotate

I finally pulled the trigger a few months ago. Well, I've been waiting and searching since quite a while ago to make a final decision to buy the lens. The main issue was focusing the lens with the Leica rangefinder. The turning point was the EVF on M240. Focusing the lens is not a problem at all!

First, I was surprised that the lens came with the Leica 6-bit coding, which is not mentioned in the product description. So the camera recognizes the lens.Using the Leica M 240, focusing with the rangefinder or with the EVF or via live view is accurate.

In the past I've shied away from using the 135m focal length on Leica rangefinder cameras as it can be (and for me usually is) difficult to focus anything past 90mm critically and consistently using the rangefinder.

After reading many online reviews about this lens, I was hesitant to purchase it. I've read many reports about difficulty in focusing and inconsistent results. However, the thought of using a lens with 135mm reach with a Leica rangefinder was too much temptation to resist. I'm glad I purchased it.

The Leica 135mm f3.4 Apo-Telyt-M telephoto lens is yet another of the excellent designs coming from the Leica lens works while the firm itself is trying to remain financially solvent.

Optically, this is probably a wonderfully lens. I mean it's a Leica right? They are the best in the world, and I have no doubt this one is too. The problem is, that getting a sharp image with it is too much of a hit or miss proposition, not because of the lens, but because the critical focusing one...
