CZJ 13.5 vs...

I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this. If not please feel free to redirect me. I'm guilty of mostly lurking around here watching the classifieds.

Anyway... I have been interested in acquiring a CZJ 4/13.5 cm in LTM mount for a while now. Have missed a couple on eBay, and have not found one elsewhere.

I'm wondering how the f4 compares to the f3.5 (more modern) version in terms of performance, and size? I'm also curious how the Jupiter 11 135/4 stacks up against the Jena? If anyone has feedback I would appreciate it.

I had both the Jupiter-11 and a CZJ 135/4.0 although not at the same time.

Image quality in both was outstanding. But, as a fellow member here once said to me: you really can't go wrong with a decent-fabricated 135 for Leica LTM, they're all good. And so far, I have yet to see different.

BTW, welcome to the (posting crowd of the) forum!
