To me; the 135L seems like a bother but every time seeing the images it brings to mind that old saying that 9 women can't make a baby in a month. Likewise; 2000 good images don't make one great one. Somehow; the 135L makes the great ones way more often than any other L I've had the pleasure of using.

For macro photography; the same can probably be said of the 100. I'd love to have that one too.

I like this analogy too. I actually used both for my Christmas photos of the kids (for head/shoulder shots) opening presents and every time I had a shot that just looked like I really nailed it and I thought WOW that came out nicely, it was with the 135L.

I see more of a new micro contrast look with the 100L compared to the older 135L design. The newer canon lines seems to have a certain sharp look. I guess my analogy is my 35L sharpness vs my 24Lmk2. The 24Lmk2 has a different contrasty sharp look sooc.

I understand what you mean, I prefer the look of the 24LII over the 35L. With the 135, since they are very similar I have been holding out and just using my macro or 70-300L. I almost considered getting another 70-200 2.8 but I had one and sold it for various reasons so I doubt I will go that route again but I sorta miss the awesome results I got with that lens. Just hated lugging it.

More different than a 70-200 f4 IS and f2.8. Funny how everyone thinks that f4 and f2.8 are sooo different with the 2.8 so much faster, but 2.8 to 2.0 is 'not that much different', even when combined with a 35% increase in FL.


yep, sometimes people need to justify their white brick.

Well I placed my order. Looking forward to trying it out.

I've been good these past few years only adding a 24-105 because of the super Adorama deal and pancake I got as a gift so I have the lens lust fairly well under control but I could not resist this for $899. I have been dying to try one for a while and it will come in handy.

Thanks for all the replies
