A Very Good Lens at a Bargain Price

L. Farwell, Amazon

  • Summary: Canon 135mm f2.8 SF product review The Canon 135mm f2.8 SF lens can be used either as a soft focus or as a normal telephoto lens. (I have no plans to use mine as a soft focus lens.) Recently I decided to give up on zoom lenses because they are too heavy for me to handle.

Great lens at an even better price

  • Summary: Over twenty years after it was designed, I can say with confidence that Canon got it right with this lens. If you are looking for a relatively fast prime lens at this focal length, this is probably the cheapest option to get you in the game.

Awesome, must have lens.

  • Summary: This lens is now my favorite go-to lens. I never use the softfocus feature on it, but the auto focus is fast and sharp and the lens works amazing. It is a bit heavier than other lenses, but is much lighter weight than a large zoom, and takes better photos by far.

Canon's unsung hero for portrait shooters

P.K. Frary "Gochugogi", Amazon

  • Summary: The EF 135 2.8 SF was among Canon's original EF lens offerings during the 1987 EOS System debut. The designation "Soft Focus" refers to the two levels of dial-in spherical aberration that softens and imparts a beautiful glow to the image.

Better than a zoom-zoom lens any day

  • Summary: Much smaller, lighter and faster (better low-light performance, brighter image) than a zoom-zoom. I don't use the soft focus feature (you can lock it in the "off" position) so I can't comment on it. If doesn't have IS but if you can live without IS it's really affordable.

  • Summary: Packaged good. Great timing! Works great! Durable. This is a real review lol. I know we are skeptical at times reading these things. I'm satisfied. Very sharp image. Works great on my Canon t3i. Soft focus has a off function

Wow!

  • Summary: What a beautiful lens. All I can say is those of you who've never shot this lens, you won't believe it until you pixilate your screen with the sharpest images you've ever seen. What's been said many times before is true. Canon makes beautiful pieces of glass and this is another.

A bargain for what it does!

  • Summary: I purchased this lens two years ago, to use with my 40D camera. To get the effect this one lens give you, years ago I would buy Softar filters for my Hasselblad at over $200 each!
