The 135L is a great lens but I wouldn't call it versatile.

I've used it with a 35L for weddings and photoshoots for years.

It really would benefit from having IS. Try getting razor sharp pics in a church at 1/30 ISO 1600 F2 with it.

Having said all that it does produce amazing images that are hard to replicate with 'most' other lenses.

It was always a great lens in the film days as the film tolerance was nothing like a modern digital camera, were everyone pixel peeps. You would see the grain in the film before the blur from camera shake, so it was never an issue.

It is a great:
Head and shoulders portrait lens
full body lens - outdoors with room (I.E the beach, function gardens)

Cheers

James
