i have the 100 f2 and have been thinking about selling 28-75 tamron and 100 f/2 for 135. The pictures per the photo archives are amazing for the 135, but is it because of lightroom? The photo archives for the 100 f2 are good, but the135s look amazing. When people take pictures with the 135 are they more skilled at lightroom, like a person shooting a 135 is more often going to be a paid photographer vs someone using a 100 f2. I understand that the 135 is sharper and has better microcontrast, better separation with background.

I rather doubt the post processing is significantly better here than the 85 or 100 thread. I'd venture the opinion that perhaps the level of photographic skill and experience might be a bit higher here because the 135L is a serious portrait photography tool. So your shots won't just pop out of the camera looking like the best of this thread, but this thread represents where you can go.

Dude, the two lenses in question are COMPLETELY different tools…end of story. Decide which of the two you want to buy first. BTW, whatever happened to your dilemma between 24 & 35mm prime? I offered my two cents on that topic and you kinda split without reply! -?


I know haha  :p it's that feeling of wanting both of them at the same time :-D

The crazy thing with my dilemma is that I ended with neither (hahaha), I got into FF for the first time with a 5D and I LOVED the 50mm + FF combination, so instead I thought of the 50mm 1.4 ART (lol)

Which POV do you prefer? Both shot at F3.2 with Westcott 26" RapidBox above and reflector below.

The second shot the camera is too high, it mahes her chin weak and emphasizes her forehead. I dont like the crop right on top of her head in #1, but thats minor.

I arrived home from work one evening in September and my neighbour's son was in his front yard. The light was nice so I raced in to grab my camera and, with his mother's ok, took a few pictures.

At full size I can see some tiny catchlights in his eyes, but there was no time for a reflector or flash to create better ones. Anyway apart from that I'm happy with this and love what the 135L can do to a background.

Had this beast for about 2 weeks now and it's definitely a keeper!
