Far too few squirrel shots in this thread imo.







I love this lens for wildlife even if I seldom get a chance to do it justice.







Cheers,

Jon,

That's a powerful photo. Almost perfect--looks like you posed it! I'm even inclined to ignore who's in it

Here's a headshot portrait I shot backstage in the green room (who knows what color it is today) at Club Fais Do Do in L.A. Hand held, as there was just no room for a tripod. Two point eight because at this distance, you need ever so slightly more depth than wide open, plus there's a big improvement just one stop down. Started out with the 85 on this, but it didn't provide enough compression for her face. The 135 was just perfect. Lighting was all from the existing makeup lights in the dressing room.

I really like my sigma 85mm f/1.4, but I absolutely could not go on without my Canon 135mm f/2.0. Just saying....













and this one

hsk06,
Nothing but good things to say about the second shot.

Peter,
I know I have seen that actress on TV. Great shot.
Also, thanks for resisting the urge to shoot the lens wide open here.
I love being able to see the face entirely in focus. Great color too.

Thank you. I appreciate that. Yeah, I usually see her on commercials. My musician girlfriend used to play in a band led by Dawn's husband - another actor. Big surprise here in L.A. though.

Yeah, everyone is either an actor or trying to become one, it seems.

She is a natural beauty, and I'm not surprised she is doing commercials.
It seems I see a lot of Gillian Vigman on commercials too.

I've recently acquired the 135 and am learning to use it. I use it both on a crop 7D and FF 5Dc. I also have the 35 f/2 which is wonderful.

A shot of my sweetheart on a kayak trip, taken at very close range.

The downside to this lens is that sometime the shots are too sharp. I find myself adding blur to teeth and make-up.

It is really amazing to see most of those beautiful decent shots are done by 5D series bodies, it is like this lens is designed for 5D bodies, i have 5Dc but i will use this on my 1 series FF not 5D.

Is this lens mostly used for portraits? Don't you find this lens is a bit long for what you shoot? Do you feel you want to go wider a bit such as 100 or 85 over this?

I have this lens and the sharpness is blowing mind for sure, but i very rarely use this lens for portraits or something else[sports].

I found 85->200mm is the best range to shoot portrait. Just use your leg to zoom out 135L like Hung did. I believed he had used 1.3 crop body on this one.
