Lol, jonneymendoza. I like street phography but can not shoot so directly people that are watching me pointing at them...I do feel uncomfortable... However I like some of your shots, not all of them (like number 3 for example) ...

Here some from today...

Pretty woman with a Canon DSLR...hmmm

Not really a levitation, but for those that really could not figure out how the trick does work, it was an attraction...

congrats Chris!

newest with 1.4X mkII

i dont think i have ever loved a lens as much as this. its so useful for probably everything its a shame the one i use is for sports only. my future purchases are some old MF prime lenses and although they cant live up to the performance of this lens at least they will do a good job for me :p

OK guys! Got some test shots done and loaded. I had extremely high expectations for this lens coming from the sharpness of the 85/135 prime combo and I am happy to see that this lens is easily on par with both. I can't believe I had any doubts! Even after the first couple of shots I dismissed it and thought it was good but not great. Then I got up and started shooting around the house and outside when the rain broke and wow.. Love having a zoom back and missed the IS. Sorry if I post too many pics but I put this through it's paces as much as I could today..

This shot stuck out to me because I didn't even notice the spider web until I was back home editing!

A few of my buddy Matt who did a great job as a test subject. (Am I the only one who thinks he looks like Brian Cranston from Breaking Bad? :))

Sharp images. So what made you dump the 135L if I may ask?

Mainly because I needed the 70-200L for my studio work. I love the 135L to death and wouldn't have parted with it if I had the funds but it helped pay for this lens. I had plans to buy another one in 6 months but now I'm really contemplating whether or not to get it because this lens is that good. I love shooting primes and still have my 35L but this lens absolutely blows me away in every category.
