Just Got a 135F2L Soft wide open?
Jul 10, 2006

After so much hype I broke down and got a 135f2L and after doing my customary ruler tests I find that at F2 it is considerably softer that at f2.8.

Now at F4 its awesome. I thought this lens was supposed to be sharp even at F2 though.

I find That at F2 the degree of softness is comparable to the degree of softness my 200mmF2.8 L is wide open at F2.8

I find this a little dissapointing. My 400 f5.6L and 500F4l are both extremely sharp wide open!
