Owner reviews: Tele Vivitar 135 мм f/ 2.8
Very good color rendition
Sharp wide open
Dcent MFD for the lens of earlier vintage
Great build, not heavy
Images give a lot od latrtitude in post-processing
A bit glowy in direct sunlight
Preset works "backwards" (in my copy s/n 204728, made by Sun??). If you set it to 4, the aperture varies between 4 and 22. Not between 4 and 2.8 as with other lenses...
My copy (presumably not made by Tokina) has the max aperture 22, not 16

Got it for 25 in a pawn shop, my guess they would go for ~100 on EB
