What would you expect the opposite of ?

I expect the opposite of a dearth of used Canon 135mm lenses hitting the market.

I'd expect quite a few people dropping their old and somehow instantly soft 135L's in favour of this new lens. Therefore there'll be lots of used lenses flooding the market. One of which I will be pleased to buy at a satisfactorily lower price.

Yes, exactly. If this is what you expect, then why did you say you expect a dearth? That is the exact opposite of what you describe here.

"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Aw nuts.

Yes fellas, that is what I meant. I've mixed my adjectives up.

I stand corrected.

i think either this lens, or the 135II need to be priced somewhat close to the new price of the 135L to get a lot of people to sell their current lenses...if both are priced at like double the current price people won't really sell...

Just in passing ... since we are talking about the meaning of words ... strictly speaking, I don't think 'dearth' traditionally was the opposite of 'glut'. It didn't mean 'shortage'. At least in its original meaning it referred to the high level of prices (the phenomenon of things being 'dear').

So the classic usage "dearth amidst plenty" was actually a reference to a situation where prices stay high or are pushed upwards despite apparently plentiful supply. There are good reasons why this can really happen ... for example, anxiety about what might be just around the corner ... or people trying to rebuild stocks ... or intermediaries trying to manipulate the market.

Bumper harvests and sky high prices equals "dearth amidst plenty".

Apologies for the diversion. And common usage nowadays does equate "dearth" with "shortage" so nothing here to bore on about any too much.


David.

one positive thing is the 135 ART smaller than 85 ART. :)

I saw that in the specs but the weight is 100% identical.

Would be tough for me to own both but I'm really thinking about it. One thing for sure this 135 is not as demanding as the 85A was at release... it was 4 months still hard to find.

After considering the 135 Art vs 135L I decided to go with the canon. For me focus speed and accuracy are important, and I thought the bokeh looked more pleasing on the L (altho admittedly the samples from the Art were limited).

I think most would be happy either way but I feel I made the right choice for my needs.

I find that Sigma lenses focus pretty well for the most part on my crop bodies. and I have 3 of their lenses. Why do you think though their lenses focus better on full frame, and do you have any back to back results of Sigma lenses tested on both crop and full frame of the same subject?

I have the 135L and after looking at a blog with examples comparing both the Art and the L, I didn't see enough of a difference to justify selling my 135L for the Art; at least, not yet. That said, I am close to purchasing the 85 Art. What do you think of it?

I just put my 135L up for sale and bought the Sigma. I'm not sure if I'm happy yet. It really is a monster...
