Bob had asked how difficult it was to focus 135mm f/2 given the very shallow DOF zone. As one can see by the red text in Column G, if one does focus-recompose of angular change of only about 7 degrees, that is the limit that DOF at f/2 would let you get away with recompose!

Isn't it similar to what 200mm at f2.8 would be? I used both on alternate nights from the same seat recently. The bokeh differed slightly but the blur was strikingly similar.

This thread is making me think really hard to sell my 100L and exchange for 135L. The corner to corner sharpness of 100L is amazing considering it's designed to be macro lens. Not to forget 4-Stop Hybrid IS. Decisions decisions....

The IQ difference must be negligible between lenses but bokeh is just simply amazing on 135L wide open. Tough call to make and I don't shoot much of macro.
