I have to agree,,the 135L is crazy sharp, almost to a point where it can be unflattering to the fairer sex..

Dog park pictures taken with the 135 and my 7D. Sorry about the watermark. These are linked from my website.

Personally, I'd stick with the 70-200 or get the 300 f4. Btw is that 2.8 lens?...if so then just get a 1.4tc.

I've been using 70-200 for soccer games on 1.6x body (50d), trying to convince myself if 135L on crop can replace it. looking thru the soccer pix for focal length, I'm at about the right length (110-150).
I'm in between 85mm 1.8 or this 135mm.

My wife complains about that all the time. She makes me PP her features and skin to make them softer. This lens is too sharp!

Hahahahaa,, for me a lens can never be too sharp.. It's easier to soften an image that's too brutal on skin imperfections than sharpen a soft image..

Hey everybody,

I was wondering if you guys get pretty harsh purple fringing (not CA) with high contrast areas with this lens, even stopped down to f/2.8 or f/4?

I know high contrast is a feat for any lens, but I just never hear much on this one. If I don't have near black/white contrast areas or close-to-blown-out against a darker background I do not get any CA or fringing, but when I do it can be pretty bad.

I just want to make sure its normal.. I know for many lenses like this with such wide aperatures that fringing and CA can be problematic, but just curious on this one!

Love this lens, by the way. It is HARD to take a bad photo with it.

I can't say I've ever noticed any CA with this lens. Definitely nothing like the 85 1.2 or 85 1.8.

God, I want to sell my 70-200 f/4L to help fund a 135L in the near future...
