AB - Love the plate:)

Heck, his use of this lens is what made me decide I needed to get it back in my bag!!

Thanks....I think (my wallet still isn't sure)

PM me if you want my 3 month old lens. Still has tons of warranty ;)

This one looks like clouds that you might see from a plane.

You don't have anything in that range so I say do it! There's many things you'll feel about it but regret won't be one of them ;)

Dang it Chris! I'm also eyeballing the 70-200L f4 IS, I can only take one or the other! Aahhh!

But I do have to say that the 135L was SHARP!

Take it from me, I'm selling my 70-200 f4 IS because the 135L is taking it's place. If you're in a position that your shooting doesn't allow you to move around then I say get the 70-200L but if you're in total control then you can't beat the 135L

I sold my 100 Macro to get this lens (and I really liked that macro!), but not one ounce of regret has stemmed from it.

The 135L is about as close to being magical as you can get.

Don't do it...go for the 135L and a 1.4 TC They pair very nicely and give you a 189mm 2.8 on FF.

Yeah...if you need the zoom, your choice is a good one....but if you can move around.....Just Do It
