Enter the 135mm f2, a lighter, cheaper alternative to the 70-200. Yes, it's not a zoom lens and doesn't have the versatility of one, but I'm a sucker for prime lenses anyway, so that was a non-issue. I took the plunge and ordered this lens and I have not regretted it one bit.
I shot my first wedding with it this weekend and was blown away by the images I saw just on the camera's display. It took amazing shots in a low-lit reception. The couples portraits came out gorgeous.
This lens is sharp as a tack and the bokah is smooth as butter. If you're wondering whether or not to order it, just do it. You won't regret it.
I purchased this lens last week for $989. Today, I see it for $899. Aaarrgh! Both ship from the Amazon warehouse. Pay attention to the prices!
Update: Just took a bunch of great "opening the Xmas presents pics". Nice head/shoulder shots from across the room. Close enough to capture facial expressions. I used the 135L on a 5DII, Iso 3200, K2600. I'm beginning to feel that my 2.8 zooms aren't so fast (aka "lens-itis"). The 2.8 zooms are great for vacations (can't be changing lenses all the time) and outdoors. But for indoor natural light shots, you want f/1.4-2.0 (especially when motion is involved). A fast lens means lower iso and faster shutter speed. Hope your wallet's fat.
The EF 135mm is the gold standard as a Canon Telephoto non-long range lens!
Advantages: Stunning, clean, sharp, smooth, colorful visuals of subjects at maximum aperture F/2, Incredible Bokeh at F/2 (especially with background light in low light environments), Fast Auto Focus (AF), Very quiet USM motor, and Excellent build quality, and looks sexier without lens hood (in my opinion). This is the lens for top quality photography!
I cannot fault the lens for the following 'disadvantages', but users should know about lens
Challenges: At 135mm Prime (fixed lens) user cannot adjust the zoom so subjects always appear much closer than user may want. Because of this reason, the lens does not have versatility to walk around with and talk photos of both indoor and outdoor subjects.
Conclusion: I cannot think of any other reason to use this lens...unless it is for taking out portrait shots of people's faces or certain inanimate objects. I will never sell this lens, because it is really that phenomenal. However, unless I'm taking photos of people it is hard to use the EF 135mm.
