Excerpt: I purchased this lens two weeks and absolutely love it. The clarity and sharpness of this lens is simply amazing. I spent a long time debating whether to pull the tirgger on this purchase or to buy a Macro lens instead. Since I primarily like to take pictures of people and my dog, I am extremely satisfied with my decision to go with the EF 135mm f/2L USM. I have two other Canon L lenses that I also love but the 135mm f/2L excells if you love creamy rich bokeh.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have been wanting a great portrait lens for a long time. I was considering the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 II IS USM lens, but the weight was more than I wanted to handle. I read a lot of great reviews on the 135mm f/2L USM and decided to go with it. I am just amazed at the quality of my photos and the beautiful backgrounds it produces. I kind of miss the zoom feature of the 70-200mm, but the difference in weight and price makes this lens my new favorite.
Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I am a wedding photographer who was looking for a lens I could carry around all day that was lightweight, would perform well in low light, and give me great bokeh. This lens is it! It's seriously the sharpest lens I've had so far and I have other L series primes. This lens has gorgeous blur around the subject and backgrounds just fade away. I wish I'd had this lens when I started. You won't regret it!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is my favorite portrait lens. It is incredibly sharp, even at f2. The bokeh produced by this lens is phenomenal. I use this lens both for weddings and portraits. Although not as versatile, I still would choose this lens over the 70-200 f2.8 any day of the week for its superior image quality. It truly is the Lord of the Red Rings!
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Excerpt: ...and the expectations were very high. How many 5-star reveiews do you need to read? This lens performs as advertised. Right out of the box, the AF is fast and accurate. No MFA rquired. IQ is nothing short od spectacular. But you've heard this all before....<br /><br />Worth it a twice the price.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
