85L II vs 135L vs 70-200L II
Jan 17, 2013
28-70L,24-70L,50/1.4,85L II,sold all sigma lens,many bodies....
owned and sold:   5d2,5d3,600exrt,17-40L, 24-70L II , 70-200L II, 35L ,100macro Currently own:     Is there a good reason to own a combination of these lens, or are they too similar to justify high prices?
I do some weddings, but mostly i shoot for personal or portrait. Perhaps the more subtle 135 would allow me a little more street
Does 135 produce something better than 70-200 II ?
Is the 85 better on 5d3 ?
So my questions are
I've also heard the 135 has a unique look but never used it
But since buying the 5d mk3 I'm having a little seller remorse as I feel it would be more useable now.
To me, my 70-200 II was more useable and I think it's a super lens
But loved the 1.2 effect when it worked
(found photo'ing my 1yr old with it an impossible task!!) I had a 85L II and sold it as I found keeper rate on 5d mk2 was low with focus issues.
Interested in owners of a combo of some of these lens
