Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

Review Date: Aug 24, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Sharp! Great colors and bokeh

This is a fantastic lens. I found it to be a little long for indoor work, but outdoors it performed like a champ.

Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L USM

Review Date: Feb 27, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Brokeh is great, low light capabilities, sharp
A little slow to focus

This is a great lens if you find yourself needing the extra edge in low light conditions. The brokeh is fabulous and alows for very creative DOF. It a great lens that I really should use more.

Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM

Review Date: Feb 27, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,400.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: fast Focus, Super sharp, focus persets and focus stop buttons
A little pricey

This is a must have lens if it fits your budget. The focus is fast and locks acuately. Definately one of the sharpest lenes that I have ever had. Works well with extenders for the extra added reach. with a little effort it's definately hand holdable, in my opinion not much less than the 70-200. Check on out if you get a chance and you will fall in love.

Sigma 150mm f2.8 APO Macro DG EX HSM

Review Date: Dec 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $490.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Build quality, color, contrast, sharpness
None so far.

This is the first non Canon lens that I have used and first non "L" lens I've used in a really long time with the exception of my Canon 100mm macro which I just sold. I must say that according to my preliminary tests on this lens and compared to all my other "L" glass this lens is the sharpest piece I own. For the price I am glad I decided to give it a try. The working distance is just what I was looking for and the image quality surpassed expectations.
