Second the motion. Haven't used the new APO-Telyt but from everything I hear, 
it is an absolutely marvelous lens. The 135/2,8 Elmarit is an excellent lens, 
difference to be noted with big projection or enlargements. It is bulky. The 
135/4 Tele-Elmar is an outstanding lens, close to the APO except wide-open. 
The problem I had with this lens was accuracy of focus, no longer a problem 
with the new VF magnifier (or a .85). 

I sold both because I found that I use the 135 focal length almost not at all 
on M-cameras.
