Re: What the AF 135 2 DC does

I have the 70-200 f2.8 and it's great but doesn't do he skintones the 105mm does.  But the 105 does have more AF errors and I regularly focus away and re-acquire and certainly dont use AF-C

I dont have an 85mm but do have a sigma 150 so I figured that a 135mm would be too close the the Sigma in FL and then I'd need an 85mm, so the 105mm for me fits my range, and budget better

But one of the major reasons I have the 105mm f2 is because of the 70-200's physical size. At informal gatherings it's just too obtrusive

However I do find the 105mm is much much better in natural light and unreliable in artificial light
