Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

Review Date: Sep 25, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $725.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Extremely sharp and very quick to focus with pleasing bokeh.
Filters sometimes effect the image quaity.

The 135L was my first L prime in 2005 and although good, it was never great and it was sold in 2012.

A lovely lady from North Carolina sold me her copy and it is sharp as a tack on every body I own, and also on my friends.

I shoot this lens without a filter because some on FM have reported diminished IQ, and I suspect they are correct, because my first 135L always wore a B&W.

It is a great lens.

Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM

Review Date: Apr 8, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,286.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: There is a devine quality to the images produced.

Canon EOS 1D Mark III

Review Date: Sep 16, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,999.99 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Lowlight Af, high ISO capability and silent shutter were major selling points, in addition to the dual cards and long battery life when compared to the 1D.
The other photographers won't speak to me and I haven't touched the 1D, 5D and 10D since the 1DIII's arrival.

I called 1-800-OK-CANON five or six times during the first week of ownership because their is so much in this camera that one can adjust and tailor to ones needs.
I tested the AF system in 100+ degree beating Sun at the NY Jets training camp, a baseball game, a hockey game and a wedding and decided Canon had fixed any AF problems previously reported to my satisfaction.
I am beginning a new venture and all my photographers will be issued the Canon 1DIII and 24-70L.
The 1DIII is a great tool.
