Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

I'll do that, Roland, when I eventually get it back.
As for minimum distance, I think it was 1 meter, but since I don't have the lens in front of me I can't check. My 135/2.8 came with a nice parallax adjustable 1:1 brightline VF.

The Komura 105/2 has often intrigued me quite a bit, but it is pricey (and rare) for a relatively unknown optic.

I got a Komura 135mm F/3.5 LTM a few months ago for $60. Very nice lens, solid easy to use well made. It really makes nice pictures. I'm more of 35mm, 50mm user so I'm not sure if I am going to keep it even though it is high quality. I might sell it. Offers?


I carry is in my bag and have found uses for it but I also have a 90mm.

Hi, Leo, if you have scans of some photos taken with the 135/3.5, I wonder if you wouldn't mind sharing them, either in this thread or in a new dedicated to Komura teles ? I'm using double-x, too, and the 135 I have would see use most often for portraits at conferences where the extra reach is a big plus, so I'm very eager to see what it can do. Thanks, Jon.

Jon,

Just read your note, I am away from home for a few more days shooting and when I get home I will try and put up a couple of scans
