For some odd reason I really love those vegetable shots :) The colours, the composition and the bokeh, all splendid! For me it somehow feels like paintings from the 18th century or something. Well done!

I just got my 135 in the mail today. I noticed that the hood doesn't have that springy snap lock feel, if that makes sense. It kinda just twist on until it hits the stop. Is this normal? It's different compared to my other hoods. Thanks

Mine's was a bit stiff, then I applied some "nose grease" (sounds minging, but rub your finger down the outside of one of your nostrils, rub same finger on the hood-mount grooves on both the hood and lens and voila: smooth hood action! :D) — I can't really believe I've just typed this! :oops:

right but does your click after hitting the end of the turn? my other lens and hood, when i put the hood on, i would feel the tension of the hood on the lens as i turn it, then at the end, it click into place. there is none of that tension or click with my 135 hood so i'm wondering if its normal. thanks

The hood doesn't click with the same solidity as my other L lenses, but clicks in better than the hood for my 50/1.4. I've seen comments about the hood in other forums, I think that poor hood fit seems par for the course with this lens. I'll forgive it for the optics! :)

The Canon ET-78II Lens Hood doesn't have those clips that most Canon hoods have.
I had an issue last week in that mine was very tight getting it on and off.
Those clips probably cause the "click" you mention.
I don't know why this hood is different.
