Geert, Eyvind, great sequences that really show off the differences between lenses. Eyvind the colors in your second shot are amazing. For the effect I was going for, a longer FL is better than short but each can be used to great effect. The 100 and 135 seem to be the most used FLs.
My favorite flower lens is my 100L as was my 100 USM before it although I also like the perspective and results of the 35f2. Yesterday I was comparing a Pentax 135 f2.5 with 20mm of extension against the 100 macro, so I couldn't help wondering how the 135 f2 L would do in the same circumstances. The subject distance was about 3 feet so I wouldn't have had to use extension on the Canon 135. Thanks all for sharing your 135 shots for comparison.
Here are two more from yesterday's session and a 35f2 at f2.8 shot from the spring to compare. Well, the first shot is of "used to be" flowers, its December after all. Cheers!
