By far the 135L is the best L lens

Seriously not impressed with your posting of an opinion without pics to back it up. While the 85L is quite a lens it is way overpriced for what it does and doesn't do. If Canons USM motor in the 135L and the lesser priced 85f/1.8 is lightning fast, how come the 85L feels sluggish in comparison. Before you throw out a comment that there's more glass involved in the 85L, please keep in mind Sigmas 85 f/1.4 is almost as fast as the cheaper Canon 85 f/1.8 and it's apretty hefty lens by a third party no less.

If you compare the 135L vs the 85L only then I would suggest taking into consideration what you want and should expect for the price you are willing to pay. Most well known pros have a hard time justifying having an $1800 lens sitting in their bag when most times a $350 - $900 version provides what they need to do their job.

That's my opinion.

So he likes the 85L better. I do to. I like the 200 2L better also and I like Leica M glass better than all of Canons glass.

I love my 135L but I truly can't answer which I prefer, as I have never got to use the 85L.


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

No its not. I've shot a lot with the 135 and its not faster, its not as sharp and has more C/A and doesn't have IS so I get shots with the 200 2L I could never get with the 135L.

But this is about some preferring the 85 over the 135 and I also prefer the 85L.

by the way, when you talk about CA on the 135 and also that is not sharper, I wonder if you're really talking about the same lens that I am talking about.

But did you or I make a posting saying we were not impressed by insert name of lens here?

I would most likely prefer the Canon ef 200 f/1.8 over the 135L but I don't make a post saying boy the images in the 200 f/1.8 thread look better to me than the images in the 135L thread. An intelligent mind knows there is a whole lot more involved at the user end than what glass is being used to capture any particular image.

And before this thread gets any more insane with comparisons and likes and dislikes I am signing out since I've put in my opinion on this inflammatory posting.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,:D

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

Whaaaaaaaaa....?? Comparing a $1,000 lens to a $6,000 lens is hardly fair.

Absolutely. The 200 2L is sharper it also has virtually no C/A because of a fluorite element the 135 does not have and again it has killer IS.

Of course its fair. Good glass is and always will be expensive. What separates good from great is sometimes measured in very small increments but those small differences can be huge.
