fantastic lens, needs skilled eye though

Wil in Philly, Adorama

  • Excerpt: This lens is fantastic, and will help a skilled portrait photographer produce excellent images. Compared to my other L series portrait lenses (which are also amazing) this lens is superior in many ways. For instance, it seems even sharper and quicker to focus than my 135mm f/2 L. Previously, I had thought that the 135L represented the "ceiling" or the absolute best performance/image quality that can be had.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sexy As F, Twice As Fast As F28
  • Cons: Attention Grabbing, Expensive, Heavy, Not An Indoor Lens Duh

Great lens

JJTroy, Amazon

  • Summary: In this lens you can basically buy youself into the ranks of the great candid portrait photographers, when combining this with the 5D3, you can automatically take terrific photos of young people, but the old folks may not like the photos because they are too revealing. Try to politely change a lens or intentionally blur the images when you are shooting moms and grannies.

Extraordinary!

Lurcus, Canon

  • Conclusion: One of the greatest lens I've ever used. I had the f/1,8 FD version, which was already stunning, but this new model is even better, especially wide open. And the stabilizer is a great addition. To improve this lens, I can only think about a shorter minimum focusing distance. Other than that, this lens is just perfect from every point of view, regardless of the diaphragm, the lighting or the distance of focus. Bokeh is very beautiful.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images, bokeh, sharpness wide open, color rendition
  • Cons: heavy, bulky

  • Summary: This lens is supreme, allowing me to impress my friends and family, eliciting lots of wows and awws, and How much did that cost, comments. Heavy and bulky though but that's the price one must pay.

this lens makes me look brilliant

JohnT, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Used this lens over the past 4 months and it never ceases to amaze me. Whether I am shooting a low-light dance/music recital or a portrait of a newborn & mother, this lens beautifully portrays the intimacy of the moment I am trying to capture. Simply, this lens makes me look brilliant (which I am not).
  • Pros: aluminum lens hood - protects accidental bumps, hard storage case
  • Cons: does not work in small rooms (~2 m min distance), heavy when using for extended periods or walking

User Review

terminator, Fredmiranda

  • Conclusion: After owning this lens for two years, I finally decide to review it, after I sold it not long ago. I bought the lens brand new two years ago. Every praise you read from the previous reviewers is true, period. I am not going to repeat those words here. However, this is not the lens for everybody. I am not saying this for its price. Rather, I am saying this for its weight and size. It is a big hassle to carry this lens around.
  • Pros: Fantastic lens!
  • Cons: Weight & size & price
