A few candids while I was working at a tournament. Incredible the isolation you can get with this lens, even in a crowded indoor situation.

I am for sure selling my 70-200 f4l to fund this lens i used my 70-200 some last nigth but stuck with my prime and 17-40 more so looks like some more primes will be the answer

Great pics. I love my 135L but I will soon be purchasing the 70-200 II for weddings and to also have more versatility for other events. I am just afraid that owning both will make one of them redundant, in this case the 135L. I could get the 70-200, sell the 135L to help buy the 35L and call it a day. But I don't want to sell the 135L... Oh decisions decisions.

Decisions indeed. I have a couple of friends who have both the 70-200 ISII and the 135L and decided to not sell the 135L. If you can afford to, keep it. It is an amazing piece of glass and honestly, a steal for the image quality you get. I'm sure thats not what you want to hear, but dont want you to regret your decision. :)

I just sold my 135L to a fine member of this board since I picked up the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS ver2 and I'm using the funds to buy a 35L or 24-70L

For how I shoot, the added versatility of zoom and Image Stability on the 70-200 is more critical than the "slightly" sharper images and extra stop of light on the 135L

There is just something to be said about shooting 200mm at f/2.8....at 1/30th of a second :)

There are people here who have posted shots taken at slower shutter speeds handheld and are extremely sharp. I'm convinced that the 70-200 II is worth every penny, I just don't know what to do about the 135L lol.

Yes, the handheld ability is sweet, even with my "old" 70-200 2.8 IS. But if it's too heavy the simple solution is monopod.

I've used this classic lens on a 5DMkII for hours, handholding and yes at the end of a long day the fingers are in pain! I've had a crease in the inside of my middle finger from the 5's grip that lasted for hours, literally! But the images, ah the images!! :)

Thanks for posting these images everyone, I have been lurking here for a good while checking out this amazing lens and the incredible images it produces.......thanks a LOT, you all just cost me money! :lol:

To be honest, I think the price is pretty good for such a lens.

Hopefully I'll be back in a week or so with some of my own to share.

you make your colors sooo intense BlackRainbow - it hurt my eyes :P But if you like it... I recognize your work without looking at the poster - so I guess thats in a way "good" ;)

That's how ALL photos should look! Nice INTENSE, BRIGHT, COLORS!!

This "soft", pastel like, mamby pamby, wussy, touchy feely color crap is just that...CRAP!! (Unless it's an early morning sunrise, OR the photog is going for a special effect) Otherwise, photos should have NICE, BRIGHT, INTENSE, EYE POPPING, MAKE THE PHOTO LOOK ALMOST 3-D COLORS!!

Well, I think saying that anything that doesn't live up to your personal expectation or personal interpretation of color is 'crap' is just plain stupid. Your personal opinion is not dogma. I think it is nothing short of rude to insinuate that anyone who isn't processing their colors for pure intensity is producing 'crap'. There are many ways to see color. If everyone processed and interpreted the world the same way - I'd be pretty bored. I really like being surprised by the things I happen to like.

You obviously have the right to express whatever you wish to express. That's fine. But to call things 'crap' is kind of dumb.

Unfortunately I sold this lens after I got the 70-200 mark 2. It was a tough decision but I felt I had to let go of that or the 100L since I have so much overlap. I feel like the 100L is a bit more versatile, better for travel, and I may need macro for upcoming product shots. I still check in on this thread to see all the amazing pics :)

How come your post count dropped down to 10? (or is this a case of mistaken identity?) I could've sworn I've seen many photos from you here on POTN. Certainly more than 10. :D

Thats right:- ) its because my name is Bigandt and my former username Palna I donīt use anymore: -)

Yeeaaah, that's right. "Palna" was it. I guess you went about it differently. I think there's a section down at the bottom of POTN forums to actually request username change. But doesn't matter much I suppose. :)

holy crap!!, mine just showed up today, put it on quicker than any person has ever fitted a lens, set it to F/2 and fired away!! This is my first (decent) prime, but it has blown me out of the water completely!!!

It's like both I and the camera have been awakened! I have seen the light (pun intended!) Ironically I had to move from F/2 pretty quick as it is too bright outside!!

I'll wait until I take a photo of "something" before I throw some up, and I know that apart from the 100-400L I don't have a superb collection, but it really makes all my other lenses look silly.

anyone using a 1 or 2 stop ND to help with allowing wide open on bright days?

I had a 50mm f/1.4 and 85mm f/1.8 and I wasn't really impressed with primes. I hear they are amazing, and the 50mm sucked, even after 2 trips to Canon. The 85mm f/1.8 wasn't bad, I was happy with it but wasn't outstanding.

THEN... I got the 135mm f/2.

I wanted one fast prime for shooting my son doing sports or very low light, and hadn't had a lot of luck (although the 85mm was pretty good) but once I got the 135mm, it was a game changer. Wide open the lens was amazing, the best I could get on the 50mm was 1-2 stops up to get any degree of sharpness, the 85mm did ok wide open but was much better 1 stop up. The 135mm on the other hand, wide open is amazing.

Just a quick one of my little girl....at F/2 of course. She was about 4 meters away at a guess. I don't find it too restrictive on the 50D so far, I just walk back a bit, no biggie.

The only sharpening was within DPP setting at level 2 when I converted it and a very mild smart sharpening of her eyes when I resized it. very light crop too. It is blowing about 20 knots here today, as you can tell by the hair! she seems to have a little nick on her face too I hadn't noticed! I left it there for this example.

One thing I have noticed straight up is lack of IS. I do move around a bit!!! I have been spoilt obviously of late as normally the 100-400L lives on the camera in most cases.

It's not just the sharpness that I'm impressed about, it's the shear quality and clarity I can personally see compared to all the other 10million shots I have of my girl!

Well my 135L showed up tonight. Only had a few minutes to put it on my 5D2 and play around a bit. Looks like it needs about a -5 MA, which I'm comfortable with. I also got a LensAlign today, so I'll be able to adjust it properly. Not sure if I'll have time to do any real testing/use of it until sometime next week. Already finding it tough to use indoors when the kids are moving quickly towards and away from the camera. Can't wait to use it outdoors more.
