It might be one of the very best, if not the best, AF Canon lenses on the A7Rii. Because of IBIS and the longer FL, there is no lens in the Canon lineup that has more upside shooting on the Sony body than this lens. There is the 200 F2.8, which I had but sold, that is equally helped, but the 135L is much faster focusing, and the IBIS just kills on this lens.
Even though my Zeiss 2/135 is a superior optic in terms of sharpness and minimized CA, I have always held the Canon 135L in the highest regard. AFAIK only the 200 f/2L has a more sublime bokeh and there is just something oh-so-special about the rendering. So, I am thinking about switching things up there - would certainly be easier to use for portraits.
Jocau will chime in to remind me of my Zeiss 135mm history, which is a solid point of course, but my counter is: a. the 135L has been on my wishlist for years and year, b. the lighter weight and AF means I will actually use it a lot more. I'll always keep my Otus - love that thing, but I think I'm ready to let it stand as my only Zeiss lens.
No solid plans, just thinking at this point...but I might order one in from B&H and see what I think. I can always return it, but it would give me a chance to use it side-by-side with the Zeiss and I can keep what I like better.
It's good enough for Elena Shumilova, so probably good enough for me...
