Amazing Lens

BJoy, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am a semi-pro (check out my pics at Brandie Brummer Photography via facebook). The most recent are with this lens. This is an amazing lens. It gives the most creamy bokeh and is light weight (with respect to the next step up -- the 200mm f/2L). This lens is a must have for your lens line-up, especially if you like the portrait with good bokeh.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Beautiful/Sharp

  • Excerpt: I've used this lens for portraits & sporting events. I am extremely pleased with it's performance at sporting events, it's quick & sharp. It out performs my 70-200mm 2.8 L USM II in the clarity of the photos. I've shot many photos using the 135, in low light there are problems. However, I do notice a couple things with the 70-200 that are lacking, but there are strengths as well.

Lives up to its reputation

  • Excerpt: I use this lens for portraits and head-shots. The bokeh is as great as I had heard about this lens. Except for its heft and weight, I cannot praise this lens enough. And the focus is really, really fast. Love it.But.... had to get the 35mm f/2 ISM for indoor shots. Indoor portraits I use 85mm f/1.8.I plan to carry these three lenses for assignments wherever. Sold all my zooms except the 70-200mm f/4L.

This is one amazing piece of glass!

  • Excerpt: This lens is amazing. I pair it with a Canon 5D Mk II and everything about this combination works just perfect for me. I shoot portraits of couples and solo portraits with this and the pictures just blow my mind each time I download them from a shoot. When used with the right technique and shot wide open, the lens offers just the right level of background compression and subject isolation in my opinion.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

Please do not change this magic recipe

PhotoCyclist, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I can only echo all the comments about the exceptional performance of this wonderful lens, and all this performance for such a reasonable price. My observation is there is frequently stated comment, "the lens would be even better with the addition of Image Stabilization". Such comments fail to appreciate that numerous aspects of this magic lens recipe would have to be compromised to add IS. I beg Canon no to change this magic recipe!
