    If I didn't just find a Zeiss Sonnar 135mm f/2.8 from a local guy on this forum, I would definitely have been interested in the Yashica! :)

    I used to have a 135 sonnar, it's a good lens and much cheaper than the 135 planar :)

    Yeah, I'm excited to try it. I'm going to pick it up tonight, but I still have to wait on an adapter from the US. How does it compare to the Yashica on size? All the 135mm f/2.8 lenses I've had or seen yet were very compact, but the Zeiss looks a lot bigger from weight specs and pictures (my only concern with the lens, since I actually chose the 135mm f/2.8 format for its compact size, lol). The Zeiss apparently weighs even more than my Zuiko 200mm f/4 (from internet search), whereas the cheaper 135mm lenses were about 2/3 the size of the 200mm/4.

    Both lenes have 55mm filter size but the sonnar is taller than yashica 135mm, well sonnar has a bulit-in hood. Also I remembered that sonnar weights about 600g so yashica is ligher (400g).

    Cool... I got my Sonnar now and it's actually the perfect size for me. :) It certainly is a heavier lens (compared with most 135mm/2.8's) but the weight doesn't bother me - I'm only concerned about the overall size for packing. I packed it up neatly in my bag along with the 1.4x teleconverter, and everything fits perfectly. Now I just have to wait for my adapter so I can use it, and replace my Zuiko 200mm f/4 (argh, why can't anybody in Canada distribute 4/3 and m4/3 adapters? Maybe I'll have to start stockpiling them and start a new side business...). :)

    Right now, I can fit only two lenses in my bag (the small travel bag, that is - of course I have a backpack for the big boys and lights), the 50mm f/1.4 and 200mm f/4. With the Sonnar and teleconverter I'll effectively have 4 lenses in the same space: a 50mm f/1.4, 70mm f/2, 135mm f/2.8, and 200mm f/4. :D I'm sure the Sonnar won't disappoint with image quality, which was never a problem with my Zuiko 200mm f/4.

    lol, good for you, you will fall in love with contax zeiss lenses soon :) I replaced my Marexar 28mm with contax 28mm and rokkor 45mm with contax 45mm. Both are excellent performers.

    Hehe... I already have my eye on a couple other Contax lenses around town, lol. Like an absolutely gorgeous Sonnar 50mm f/1.5, like my Jupiter-3 but much nicer. xD

    One more thing I'm going to love about the Zeiss 135mm/2.8 + EC-14 combo over my OM Zuiko 200mm f/4, is the close-focus distance. The problem with the 200mm/4 is that it requires a full 8.2 feet to focus! The 135mm/2.8 only requires 5.5 feet, still a lot for 135mm but it won't change when stepped up to 200mm with the teleconverter. :) I'll be able to get much closer in once my C/Y adapter arrives.
