I'm very close to getting this lens...I'm doing some freelance proofreading, and should have the green in a day or two. This thread is just EVIL. One look, and you are lost...

This is the only one of ten shots that came out good, the rest were from slightly OOF to blurry and completely OOF. Go figure out if it's the camera or the lens...

Hehe, I don't think so :D It wasn't moving that fast, it was kinda hanging in the air, besides two weeks ago I took the same shot with the 85 1.8 and the toy was actually flying fast all over the place and I got better results.

I find that the 135 does not balance particularly well. To me, it's very "twitchy" due to the weight being all at the front element.

Takes practice (just like the 999,999 other things in photography...)

This. The Rebel body is more difficult to balance longer lenses with.

Indeed...

I'm much better with the 135 on a 1-series than I was when I'd shoot it on the un-gripped 5Dc I used to have.

Great lens. I own two different year ones and I use one with my 5DC while the other one with my 7D.

This gentleman served in the Pacific in WWII as a rear gunner in SBD Dauntless dive bombers. He was giving talks on his experiences as part of a "Meet A Veteran" program at the USS Midway in San Diego.
