In order to get good shots handheld....
In reply to panamamike, Apr 28, 2011

you need your shutter speed to exceed the mm of the lens.

In other words...you need to take photos with that 135 at shutter speeds above 1/135. On a tripod it makes no difference, but being handheld and no form of stabilization this works.

Someone passed this tidbit of information on to me some time back and it has been valuable advice.

The 135 2.8 Rokkor is capable of some really good shots. I have a few in my gallery on here of grandchildren, but I've done plenty more and some are truly good.
