I'm absolutely blown away!
Jun 5, 2009

After two copies of the Sigma 50mm f1.4 that exhibited horrid AF tendencies wide open, I exchanged my latest copy (plus some money!) for the Canon EF 135mm f2 L.

I'm in heaven! This thing is blazingly fast, AF hits dead-on every single shot, the bokeh is gorgeous... mmmm.....

Anyways, just thought I'd share with you my happiness. No more Sigmas for me. Especially after I called their Canadian repair centre and literally got accused of not knowing how to use the lens properly!

The technician denied that there were ANY problems with ANY of the 50's, told me the forums with reports of bad copies were full of sh*t and, only after I told him I'm a pro who shoots media, didn't believe that I'd know a lens problem if I saw one!

Anyways, this 135 blows me away! I'll post shots later...

Take care,
christopher t.
current set-up: two cameras and two lenses and a flash
