Good read! Thanks! This would be great addition to my 35mm & 85mm. I mostly shoot weddings and the focal lenght would be a killer for candids.

It's a great lens... rent one and see if the focal length works for your shooting style. It's fun to shoot... and the results can be stunning.

I had the 135 and just picked up the 200L F2... So far the 135 I think is a much more versatile lens. Good review... now I'm looking to pick up another one :)


My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....

This is quite the endorsement. :) I've wanted to shoot the 200L F/2 for some time now. I can see where the size of it might be a little bit of a hassle... however... from what I've seen the optics are stunning. The 135L is no slouch ... great chunk of glass for sure. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Question for you 135L users: I've had my 135L for a few years now, and just recently it seems like I've noticed that it feels like something moves around inside the lens. If I have the lens mounted to a camera, and tilt it up and down it feels like something is sliding around. It doesn't seems to affect the images at all, but does anyone else have the same thing happening with theirs?

Hey Steve. I can't say that I have noticed anything like that with my 135L. Might be worth sending it off to Canon to have them inspect it?

To the OP, great shots and a great review. Thanks for sharing!
