I am selling my 70-200 2.8 non IS and my plan is to buy a 200 2.8 II which I plan to use for LL baseball etc. I know it does really well for this but now I am thinking maybe the 135 instead. When I need that extra reach I can use a TC on it. So I would love to see what the 135 can do shooting sports. I might also mention if I get a 200 I would also pick up an 85 1.8 for when I get up close

Thank you
Mike

Not gonna lie, a 70-200 would have been much more convenient. I've also been wanting a 1.4x TC for a while now, and that would have helped for some tighter shots.

jigglypuff I agree the zoom is a lot more convenient but image quality is what I am really looking for and where I have to stand most of my shots are at 200mm down to about 135

Very nice shots I like a lot thank you

I don't shoot baseball, but love the 135L for equestrian events.
The 200L f/2.8 is a great lens too, it's just a little too long for the equestrian events that I attend. My 200 takes TC's better than my 135 too.

Oh, if you want quality the 135 certainly won't disappoint so long as you keep the ISO low enough to minimize noise (I notice a huge loss in detail). Where do you usually shoot? I'm in Redmond, WA and I'm always looking for fun, random events, and I'd be willing to meet up and let you use my 135 for an evening if I can use your 70-200 :D

I mainly shoot around the Arlington area where my grand boys attend school. But just the other day my youngest grand son played in an allstar game in Mill Creek. But it looks like I will not have a 70-200 2.8 after tomorrow as I am meeting a person to sell it to him

I don't shoot much sport, but it was great for tennis. I think it would be a stellar performer for any sport with it's very fast AF and big f/2, as long as it's reach is enough. Some tennis shots:

I use that lens quite often for quad-bike races ....AF doesn't lock really quickly on a 5DMKII (at least slower than my 300L2.8nonIS).

But results are really good particularly in dark conditions.

I think the 70-200 would be a better match for baseball unless you plan to move around. For me, a fixed lens is a better match for a smaller court/field. But that's just me.

:lol::lol: .. it's an old story at the beginning of internet at the time Microsoft tried to kill internet with MSN (very early 90's)...
I showed how to use such technology to friends, family and so on to find anything much easier than with any encyclopaedia or dictionaries ... and i was calling this as a newworld ... but my family and friends where saying "it's diabolic, you can't do that, you can't speak with people around the world like that!!! " :lol::lol: .. so I used newworld666 as pseudo which is somewhere the meaning of the beast .... and I am still called 20 years later 666 .... ;) :lol::lol:
