I think that primes for sports aren't ideal.

You'd be better off getting any of the 70-200 variants. You already have a great/fast portrait lens in the 85 f/1.8. It's long enough on a crop body to be okay for indoor sports too.

Japan just ran out of the awesome material that is needed to make the 135L. Apparently they found some more in a warehouse in Tokyo.

well that is a crock of #$%t, do you honestly think that they keep star dust in a warehouse in Tokyo?!?!?! everybody knows that the only way to get more material to build the amazing 135L is by sending another NASA ship to the moon and collect the dust there. so... if you really want to know when Canon will be able to sell more, all you need to do is go here and look for the next launch:

Indoors 135mm.

Outdoors 200mm f2.8.

135 is a fine lens but no 1.4xTC on it is going to come close to 200mm f2.8.

Since you shoot with 40d, you cna get 85mm f1.8 for indoors and 70-200mm f2.8 non IS for outdoors.

I have decided to purchase a new lens for HS sports photography .......

Unless I missed it, you really need to be more exact on what kind of sports photography you'll be doing before the recommendations make some sense.

i don't care how it performs optically, but a lens made from moon dust would be so ridiculously badass. ;)

listen guys, don't you know that the much maligned planet (it really is) Pluto, gives off the best energy? It is not dust. It's Pluto gas. If you put it in the lens, it actually sucks all the dust out of the camera, off the sensor and out of the lens if any.

Pluto gas works in tandem with the the Sensor cleaning, and so far it is only found in the 100L 2.8 Macro. Some say they are piecing apart the 100L to put it in the 135, but those are just rumors. the 100L is the only glass that Pluto gas is featured in, don't believe the rest.

Go to Newegg and put yourself on the notify list, they're still selling them at this past springs $939 as opposed to everyone else. I got my 100-400 last week from them for $1570, looks like I got it just in time before they bumped it to their new price(still cheaper than elsewhere).

+1 for newegg.com

Got my 135L from them a couple months ago for under $900 after 6% bing.com cashback. Arrived the next day and quickly became my new favorite lens.

I'm still looking for one of each of these lenses....no one is selling them. the ones that are selling them, they're asking more than a new lens from Newegg. Can someone please help me find one?
