I recently received my 135 f/2 from B&H which "completed" my Holy Trinity :).

I love shooting with these but I won't lie, I hate switching over the 85mm because I worry about scratching that rear element :lol:. And yeah no 35mm, I went with the wider perspective of the 24mm and weather sealing is a plus, maybe one day I will have a purpose for both :mad::lol:.

Enjoy!!!

I have the 24L and the 135L. Been thinking about trading the 24L for one of the other two...probably the 85L as a trade in would help with that high price. Decisions, decisions!

Congratulations on finishing your set.

I don't know if I will ever get the 85L as the 85mm f1.8 is sharp and, more importantly to me, focuses faster for indoor sports and other moving objects than the L. Seems the 85L is more a holy for portrait photographers. For me I too hope to get the 24L (mk ii) some day instead of the 35L. Will depend on when and what deals come along.

I just got my 135L last Friday and haven't got to shoot a sporting event. It seems like it should be plenty fast enough. Definitely sharp enough - sharp enough for almost anything.

I feel the HT (in photography) should more dependent on the photographer and the typical subjects, rather than 35L, 85L, and 135L. At least that is how I will determine my HT. Besides I usually carry five or six not three.


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

Yeah definitely, I love the fast AF on the 135, I have heard it's ideal for indoor sports but I have yet to try also.

Picked up the 135L last month (first L prime for me) and it has not disappointed. I am in love with how it renders images both sharpness and color saturation as well as bokeh. Easily my favorite lens and has me debating one day trading in my 24-70 for the 35L. Though I have avoided the idea since my 24-70 is so damn sharp, with all the horror stories about that lens mine has been money from day 1.

I only have the 35L. =(

However, after getting my hands on the 70-100/2.8 IS II, I no longer lust for the 85/1.2 or the 135/2. You can say I just killed two birds with on stone. The lens is SUPER SHARP!!! And the compression bokeh is almost as good as the legendary 85/1.2. The weight is my only concern at the moment, but I just suck it up. lol!

That is how I completed my collections. 35L, 85L and 70-200 f2.8 IS mark ii. I killed 3 birds with one stone, by also completing my zoom trinity with 16-35 mark ii and 24-105 f4 and the 70-200 mark ii. I just skip the 135L all together.

Congrats on completing your trinity. And I love that its a real trinity in that those are your only three lenses. There is beauty in simplicity! Hopefully some day I'll join you. My triplets would be 24,50 and 135 though:)
