Every time I think about upgrading my 3rd hand Canon 5D, I just look at what it can do and decide to save my money.

Way too many cameras, lenses, tripods, and bags (especially bags, where did all these bags come from?)

Heya,

Depends on your needs. I would use the 100L, to get the macro, portrait ability, and IS all in one. The 135L is great for portrait if you have the room, but it's not a macro lens (though you could use extension tubes if you wanted to). The 100L is more versatile. So it comes down to priorities. The 100L is no slouch as a good portrait lens.

Very best,

Does it means the 135L is really "bad" for closeups of flowers ?

Not at all,

But obviously the 100L will get closer, if you want macro, than the 135L will. The 100L can do 1:1 macro out of the box at 12" (30 cm). The 135L cannot (it's minimum focus distance is 35 inches, almost 3 feet). You really cannot compare them at this function though, a designed macro lens will simply do macro and the other will not without extension tubes, diopters, etc. That said, flowers depending on which ones you are wanting to shoot, are large. So large that usually you do not need macro at all. The 135L will capture large flowers just fine at 36".

If you are looking at stamen of flowers, etc, then a macro lens will give you more options. Again, macro lens being more flexible.

The 135L will do portrait, it will do large flowers, large objects, etc, and has wonderful bokeh.

The 100L will do the same thing, just at F2.8, with a closer working distance, and can focus at 12" instead of 3 feet, also with wonderful bokeh. Add to that image stabilization, so you can do more with lower shutter speeds in ambient light that the 135L simply cannot accomplish without a tripod.

For some, the IS alone is the breaking point, being able to hand hold and shoot at 1/40s for example, instead of always having to shoot at 1/160s~1/200s with the 135L without extremely good bracing to avoid the motion blur.

It's all about your needs.

I use a 90mm F2.8 stabilized macro lens for my portrait, macro, etc, lens these days. I don't miss F2 compared to F2.8. I have 85 F1.4 as well, and it blurs more, but more blur doesn't make something better. I can't even begin to describe how much more useful it is to have stabilization in low light with natural ambient light on a telephoto lens, and the versatile of macro opening up a whole slew of things. It's easily one of the most versatile primes out there (stabilized macro telephotos).

But, the 135L is a magical bokeh machine, if that's what you want, for portrait. And again, it will do just fine for large flowers.

Very best,
