Recently got one of these and it certainly is very good, mine has scratched front element, which I haven't seen influence the IQ in any way.
I have to say though, this is an not a pretty lens... The zebra version is much nicer, or the Taks. But thats another subject Razz

I prefer black lenses to zebras from aesthetical standpoint.

I've got nothing against the black on the CZJ, but I dont like the asthetics that much.
This one on the other hand is very sexy indeed. Twisted Evil

Wait a min.... did I just say sexy to describe a lens? Rolling Eyes I need help...

Oh i'd even say its hot Wink

What i like about the Sonnar is the inscription on the front lens : Carl Zeiss Jena DDR, and you've got to love the MC lens glint ( meh i watched the dictonary for that, i could have said reflexions ) ^.^

and the red lettering. red and black ftw

True on the colors.
white on black is more sombre.

Chinon's orange and greens lettering make it look a bit like a toy.

Speaking of the barrels' look, I think the best looking is the aluminium 4/135 Sonnar - and in my personal opinion, the 4/135 takes better pictures than the 3.5/135, in spite of the older age and single coating (but I am in the minority, because many more people prefer the 3.5 version).
Anyway no-x'a lens is a great bargain at 70 Euros. The normal value of this lens is 90-100 Euros, so grab it now.

I respectfully disagree with you all on the most beautiful 135mm...

In my opinion, it is definitely the Tair 11a. I looks like the front gear drive on a Cold War Tank... There is something very sexy about tank gears Laughing

And bump
