Sold this lens about a year ago and regretted it ever since...just pulled the trigger and re-purchased it.

Can't wait 'till Friday :D

I haven't had a chance to get out and use my 135 since it got delivered last week. :-( I should have the chance to get it out this weekend but I wanted to ask- what minimum shutter speed do you guys recommend with this lens? Something tells me that I won't be able to use it with my speedlights since I'd have to keep it under the sync speed of 1/200.

I'm looing at picking up a YN-568EXII and some YN-622 triggers to be able to use HSS, but that's not an option yet.

Yes, HSS is what I use with this lens. I try to have my shutter speed be triple the focal length or more with this lens if I can. Otherwise hold it REAL still. :)
