During a Leica Akademie event I had the opportunity to use the APO Telyt 135mm all day. This is a lens I have had my eye on for several months now, but this is the first time I actually used one and the results did not disappoint. Here are a few taken on an M9 which was also loaned to me, I'll post some taken on my M6 after I have developed and scanned.

Man, that thing is so sharp you could almost see the body parts under the Hollywood sign! ;)

Seriously though, great shots. They must be ridiculous at full size!

This lens is about as good as it gets as far as M lenses - at practically every aperture the MTF curves are nearly flatlined... Most impressive!

Unfortunately I wasn't considering doing crops when I was shooting so all where shot at ISO 250+. Here is one at 200% and ISO 250:

maybe not dead bodies, but you can easily count the vertical posts on the chain link fence above the sign.

Lovely samples, Alex! The lens doesn't seem to leave one wanting, either. Most impressive.
