What do you use your 135mm lenses for? Which specific lens and why this one?

The Sony 135 GM is very good for relieving the stress of having too much money in your bank account 

I use mine with the A7R4 for candid shots - it gives you distance, and you can crop further, without using an obviously long lens.

Also very good for outdoor portraits - it’s a bit long for studio work, but you can use it for headshots. It’s a flattering perspective.

I find it useful for taking photos at the zoo - it’s a lot lighter than the 200-600, but I can crop in a long way, because it is very sharp.
