I can't say that I'm not inspired by all your images. Lots of good stuff in this thread...one that I wish I had more time to frequent. Well, here I am stopping by. ;)

Most of the pictures attached here are made on FF camera.

I'm stuck in the same boat.
I don't know whether to choose the 35 or 135!

To be honest they compliment each other perfectly :) Just add an 85mm in between and you have the portrait trinity! :D

First the 35L, because it can do borth portraits and landscapes, while the 135L can only be used for portraits. (With a few exceptions of course.)

Thats the way I went. :)

I would also get the 35L first because 35mm gives you an entirely different field of view, whereas 85 and 135 are both in the telephoto range.

Judging by your sig, you need the 35L more than the 135L right now! :)

This is the only lens I've owned and tried capable of producing SOOC images wide open. Here's a couple from this past weekend's shoot, both SOOC.

CallMeJag = that's a breathtaking shot!

Now I have a question for you. In order to obtain that perfect DOF which encompasses the whole length of the car what part of the car you aim your active focal point at? What's the minimum subject distance that ensures that no car parts will be left out of focus at f2?

(according to my DOF calculator you should be at least 20 meters away from a car just to get a DOF of 2.63m which is barely the length of a sports car... is that so?)

Thank you!

This shot had to be quick since the car was on the move (this was taken after a slalom run, his return trip to the paddock). My focus point was the front right fog-lamp (aiming for a point of high-contrast). At the distance I was at 16.5 meters according to the EXIF, I knew I was going to get most or all of the car in focus. You can vaguely see how the back wheel is beginning to lose focus.
