For anyone debating a 135L f/2
Jul 7, 2010

I shot a wedding this weekend and I needed a little more reach so I hired a 135L f2 just in case. I recently sold my 70-200 f/2.8 IS because I was contemplating buying the MKII version however after using the 135L I am not sure I am going to. The 135 produced far sharper images than any other lens I have owned including the 85L, it was simply amazing, all shots were taken wide open and they are so sharp I think a few may need softening as it shows fine details like facial hair (not good on pictures of women etc).

It must be the most value for money L lens, focuses spot on, dreamy bokeh and not too big either.
I have returned the hire lens and ordered one yesterday.
Thought you may like to know my thoughts.
