I've personally never had a problem with the 135L and camera blur. With newer bodies like the 5D MkIII and 6D, you can crank up the ISO when needed. 'IS' definitely handicaps you after you've used it for awhile. It starts making you not think about shutter speeds as much, which can be dangerous when you go from shooting static to moving subjects.

Regarding the 100L, I've had both and the bokeh from the 135 is much better for portraits. Not to mention there is something magical about shots at F2 and the 135mm length. Of course the macro is more versatile, but I'll take the 135L any day of the week for portraits :)

finally gave my new toy a proper run through today. I'm impressed to say the least, although its seriously difficult to nail focus at f2.

uncropped at f2. blur is natural.

Love the blur of the magic pipe. I love the angle of this image gives such a POP!
