I have reuploaded the videos.

135mm F2 auto focusing on 6dii (external link)

35mm f2 IS auto focusing on 6dii (external link)

Does the 135mm seem sluggish compared to that 35mm?

vastly different tech in the two lenses...the 135 is old...I don't remember it being super slow on my 5d2 or 7d, but its been a long time since I used it on those. Its really fast and snappy on my two Sony bodies now.

On my 1D-series bodies, the AF is pretty fast... But I don't know if my camera body has anything to do with its quicker AF speed... It still can't beat my 200 1.8L AF speed, though... And that glass is 10+ years older than my 135L... Hehehhe...

thanks for the replies guys. Not that I am dissatisfied with the speed per say, I am more concerned, If it is defective and autofocus motor stop working after a year. So, wanting to make sure the lens is functioning as it should, so I can enjoy its magic on my new 6dii without worry.

Well enough that its one of only two Canon lenses left in my bag! And as well as it works on the A7R2, it works even better on the a9. I use it on both bodies on every portrait shoot I do.

curious to know if anyone has actually used this lens exclusively on their camera. I have a friend who told me that for over a year he used this lens on a full frame for everything. landscape people portrait animals, everything. I love this lens but not sure it could cover everything for me :-D

I think we all have tried.

I could not. It's too long for "everything."

Very best,

I have the Metabones IV-T. Eye AF on the a9 works amazingly good...it is much improved over the 7r2...a recent update to the FW on the adapter should allow eye af to work better on the r2, I just have not tested it...will do that.
