Close friend is buying it.

Did you decide to sell it because 85 is too close to 135?

niwooe wow awesome shot, 1.2 wide open?

airfrogusmc nice shot, which camera did you get?

Not at all, just wanted something a little wider without any distortion. Found that for some studio stuff I need a little less than 85mm. 24L for my wide prime will be nice, 50L for my normal walkaround and full body/group shots/some headshots, and 135L for head shots and tight crops.

Thanks Mike,

Picked up a couple of 5DIIs. Our good bud Ed bought my old 5Ds.

I'll still look in because I love this thread. Some of my favorite POTN photographers post in here, you being one Mike.

..and here i thought it'd take an act of god to drag you kicking and screaming over to upgrade considering all of our conversations about it. it was inevitable! :p

all joking aside though, i think you'll get used to the new set of tools pretty quickly. after the first week or so of transition between upgrading from my old pair of 5D's, i've found that the biggest change that i really couldn't get accustomed to was the 5D2 thread rather than this one. my 5D2's have been a very capable replacement to my old ones, and i'm sure you'll find that to be the case for you as well.

ps: i'm submitting a formal application to also stay in this thread even after i sell my remaining 5D. ;)

Hey Mike I'm already liking it a lot more than I thought I would. I've already shot a dozen jobs or so with them and I really like the better low light performance, the micro-adjust and the higher pixel count.

Had to spend some $$$ before the end of the year.

Was really close to a Leica M9 but was a bit short to get that and the lens I wanted. Next year.

I am very pleased with them both so far.

I'm trying to decide between a 135L f2.0 or a 100L Macro f2.8 lens. They're similar cost and I can't afford both. The versatility of the 100L Macro is very appealing, but as a normal lens how does the sharpness and IQ compare with the 135L? I keep reading that the 135L is one of the best lenses available for any brand body, so would I kick myself for not getting it?


5D & 7D (both gripped), 24-105L, 100-400L, 15-85, 50 f1.8, Tamron 28-75, Sigma 12-24, G10, EX-Z55 & U/W housing, A1+10 lenses, tripods, lighting gear, etc. etc.
