Great shots, especially the first three, which seem like instant classics. You make a great lens look good!

These are great shots.

I'm toying with the idea of getting this lens or the 50mm 1.4 with the 600 flash unit.

Can't quite decide which way to go but after seeing those pictures, it's making me want to pick up this lens first and get the 50mm later.

Re: Canon 135 F2 goes to Cowboy Festival

I had the 50mm 1.4 and was not impressed with my copy (purchased new) and I sold it. I doubt I'd ever sell my 135 f2  it never ceases to amaze me. the prion price it's a real bargain! My advice buy the 135 f2  or rent it and you will see for yourself grow good it is. The background blur is creamy and the picture sharp and colors and contrast beautiful! If it only has I.S. ! The only negative is the focal length is a bit long Especially on a crop camera.

Superb photos. Nice composition.

Though I am not sure how I could use that focal length, I desire to own that lens soon.

Very well composed and detailed images. My favorite is the lassoo instruction #6. The B+W fits very well with the theme. I bet it was a fun event to shoot. Thanks for posting I'm so bored by all the gear talk when I visit DPR lately.
