About 20-25 ft I guess. He was waiting to start his run up the Gurston Down hillclimb course so he wasn't moving at the time The EF 135mm isn't the best paddock lens in the world - the focal lenght is wrong, I just took it along that day to test it out. I might use it for some rallying in the new year though, it would probably work well in dark, murky forests.

Not arty, but I love the expressions!

I love the lens and I am sure you will too.

A couple from 2 weeks ago:





And a wedding rehearsal.


That thing is soooo easy to miss the focus at f2.0. DOF is like 6 inches at 50 feet - seems like anyway.

Taken in a theatre from the first row.






The lens is wicked sharp, and balances very well on a 20D.
I found the focal length, on a 20D, to be perfect.

Thanks, I'm hoping to put it through the paces today—taking grandkids to the park.
