Michael - are all these close-up photos with the 135mm lens just crops of a larger photo?  Also, in the photo with the extension tube, did you notice any reduced sharpness of the image.  If need be, could you redo the extension tube shot and then take the same shot without the extension tube and crop the photo to the same close-up with the extension tube.  If there is no reduced sharpness, then I would buy the 135mm instead of the 100mm for macro photos (I have the Kenko auto ext. tubes).

These are crops of varying sizes. No extension tubes. I am done testing this lens, so what comes in the future will just be photos with this lens. As for reduced sharpness with extension that I posted in another thread, I imagine there is reduced sharpness here as with any extension tube, but the lens handled it rather well.
 
As for the 100mm Makro-Planar Zeiss, I seldom use it because it is not sufficiently corrected. For my work, there is no comparison between that lens and the APO Zeiss mentioned here.
