You can also do macro with this lens. Two experimental shots with very high contrast, last bright light of the day, handheld, with 25 mm extension tube, on 5D II, the first at 800 iso, the second at 1600, and both at F/8. Handheld of course :D.

Kind regards, Wim

I also caved this week and got one. Arrived Wednesday. Have to try to get our and use it this weekend. I had to get a good copy of this lens now that there's word it's not going to be around anymore.

Too bad, my 135L on my 30D thrown between many boxes in my room waiting the salvation!

It spooked me to hear that Canon might do away with a renowned lens, so I bought one and received it just now--an hour ago--time enough to go out the door and use one of my hibiscus as a test subject

Canon 5DM2, 135 L, ISO 100, 1/800s @ f7 on program mode and I think I was trying to fine-tune the AF when I shot the image handheld at closest focus.

These are no great shakes as images but I'm pleased to see the sharpness of the fine hairs on the 100 percent crop of the whole image.

Recently, I've started using this lens as a macro, with the use of extension tubes.

AB -- nice kicks.

Pete, how do you like the combo, with a tube? I've seen some nice results...and I like your second one. :)
