I've always found my 135 to be the most effortless of my lenses,at obtaining great results.
Apart from any silly error on my own part. It's as sharp as a tack,whatever I point it at.


Learning. Slowly,but surely...

I need to get my hands on a FF body one of these days (I shoot with a 7D II) so that I can enjoy that creamy f/2.8 bokeh @ 200mm. I love this lens wide open at 200mm, but I always wonder, "what if... I was shooting FF? How much creamier would the bokeh be?". Siiiiigh. One day. ;) I may even pick up a used 5Dc, just to find out. My sigma 50 Art would be amazing on FF, too.

5Dc is great if you can find one in good condition. Otherwise, there's always 5D2 or even 6D to enjoy the FF fun. :)

We actually sold our 70-200 to stick to the 135 and 85 (1.2). Found that the versatility didn't suit us.

I saw this seal on a boat launch and figured I'd get a shot of him. He didn't seem too concerned about my presence. :)

Hi Seba, noob question.. how do you get f3.2 with your combo? My 5dIII with the 70-200 II, jumps from 2.8 to 3.5. Is it me or....?

Hm... you may have not set your "Exposure level increments" to 1/2 stops instead of 1/3 stops.
