Might be joining the club soon. I love my 135L and the Sigma 85 is a pretty darn good lens too, but I find myself stopping down on the Sigma to either get rid of CA (which I know is to be expected in primes) or because the DOF isn't sufficient for what I'm working with. This along with me building my studio this month and wanting the versatility of a zoom while shooting indoors, I'm really contemplating getting this. I feel like I'll be shooting between f/7.1 and f/11 anyways while shooting in a studio setting too where light won't be an option.

I shot a wedding this weekend and although both the 135L and 85 did the job just fine, I was shooting with OCF and stopping down to f/8 just to match the sync speed. At that point, shooting primes just becomes a burden moreso than a benefit. I'm going to have to think about this long and hard over the next few weeks as I don't have an issue getting rid of the 85 but will have a VERY hard time saying goodbye to the 135L and can't afford both at this time.

I'm interested in buying a used 135L if you decide to sell.

Since you're going to be shooting in the studio, why not get the 70-200 f/4 IS version? Then you can keep the 135L.

I need a FL between the 35/135 that will shoot at 2.8. I had the 70-200 f/4L IS and it was a great lens but it was very tough to shoot weddings indoors in low light with it. I've even thought about getting that and picking up a used 85 1.8 but I still shot 100% of the reception shots at f/2.8 for the DOF alone. The only thing keeping me from doing it is the love I have for the 135L. It's the lens I compare everything else to and it's served me very well. Decisions.. decisions..

Nice shot Phil. Didn't see the spider until I saw the crop.

Thanks! I was amazed at the detail, especially with a TC!

Gracias Brett. :) I was able to get pretty close to the heron without scaring it away.
