Nice lens

  • Excerpt: I use this lens at the skating rink and other sporting events. It takes a little getting used too because I hand hold it. I found that by bumping up the ISO and the shutter speed it takes crisp pictures. Adding a flash helps.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I use this lens on an APS-C sensor EOS SL1 Rebel for landscape photography. Focal length after the 1.6 crop is 320mm on APS-C. This lens kills! Truly stellar long telephoto image quality. I passed on the 70-200 L zooms because I really only cared about the top end of the focal length range. The problem with the 70-200 zooms is that 200mm performance is mediocre. You need to back off the zoom for clean edge to edge sharp photos on those lenses.

Great lens

T. Wicker "Bibliognost", Amazon

  • Summary: I love this lens! It's fairly light weight, unobtrusive and fun to work with. As you'd expect with a prime, the image is sharp and the lens focuses very quickly. Because it's so unobtrusive I found it was easy to carry into a concert and none of those sitting near me were disturbed when I took a few photos sans flash. Others taking photos with point and shoot cameras and/or smart phones were much more noticeable due to the LCD screens versus the view finder on my DSLR.

I could not be happier with this wonderful lens

  • Summary: I could not be happier with this wonderful lens. I struggled with the choice of this or a 70-200mm but an happy with the prime. It's as good as my f2 135mm..

The little forgotten lens that could...kick butt.

geek4u, Ebay

  • Summary: I am a lens snob. There, I said it. I began to shun zooms and own and carry only primes, sometimes five at a time. But I just couldn't get rid of my 70-200 f4 IS USM; I needed that reach. Well, I borrowed this lens for an afternoon and immediately fell in love. I've had the 135 f2 for years, and it has become my go-to lens for walking around, especially for shooting festival events.
