    Nikon Sonnar designs for DSLR flange distances?

    Probs a dumb question but is the only Sonnar design that fits common DSLRS a 135mm f/2? Do 50, 75, 85, 90 mm Sonnar designs exist for (D)SLRs?

    Leica Wartime Sonnar 1:4 f=13.5cm

    Just arrived! Took a chance on what was described as badly scratched lens only to find a few whispy cleaning marks. I love it when sellers over emphasize the flaws! Only real bummer was the dent in the filter ring. And now for some pics!
