    Several versions of this lens in the Canon rangefinder line, this is the best. Black finish to match the 85/1.9 and 100/2. It is lighter than the Nikkor lens. The 135/3.5 uses 48mm filters, not a common size- but easy enough to find.

    This is a 4 element in 3 group Sonnar formula lens, linear aperture scale and click stops.

    These are some quick test shots done with the lens, wide-open on the M9. Focus is perfect on the M9, for the Monochrom with a deep colro filter on it I would add one layer of tape to the Cam.

    This lens was not expensive, you can expect to pay under $100 for it.

    It might be lighter than the nikkor in LTM, but the black nikkor in Contax mount is 40 grams less. However Amedeo adapter is heavy, but there are light un-coupled adapters to Sony E for 20USD.
