I'm considering, or have been, selling my 70-200II and going with the 135, a lens I've had before and really enjoyed. I've read all the previous comments and discussions and know that for the most part the support is split down the middle for either.
However, in reading through these comments, I keep seeing the following comment come up and I can't quite wrap my head around it's intention: "With the 135, you'll have to step back to fit people in the frame."
Now assuming I'm shooting closer in the 70mm range, yes, I get it, you gotta move back. However, if I already do my outdoor portraits close to 200, I really will be a tad closer when taking into account DOF considerations.
Am I thinking about this statement correctly or is there some meaning that I am overlooking?
