After following this thread for so long am tempted to get this lens.
Gonna be hard to justify the price point considering I already have the 70-200 f2.8 IS v.2  :p

Same here! Well, except I don't own the 70 but I'm following this thread for a really long time, I'm so tempted to order this lens but I don't know... I also want the 135L! :s

Wait, so do you have the 70-200 f2.8 or no?
If you have the 70-200 than it makes much more sense to get the 85mm f1.2 as the 135 is quite close to 70-200 in its style.
However, if you don;t have the zoom than yeah, a hard choice you have between the 135 and 85  :p

P.S. My advice though is to get the 70-200 f2.8 IS V.2 first if you don't have it. I believe that that lens is just incredibly versatile and still amazing for portraits.

Wanted to do some photos of a female subject with very little or no makeup and all natural light.

I like all of them maybe the first most. But there is an orange spot at left of his leg. It seems come from the bridge. What is it?
