Canon EF 200mm f/1.8L USM

ef200mmf_18l_1_
Review Date: Jul 1, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,000.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Shaprness, bokeh, colour rendition.
Cons:
No surprises for me. Do your research and know your requirements and you won't be disappointed.

Can't really add much to the mix here. The lens has been around for some time now so pretty much anything that can be said has been said.

The main thing is that I'm happy I bought it and have no regrets paying what I paid.



 
Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

ef135mmf_2l_1_
Review Date: May 7, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharpness at 2.0, light weight, speed of focus, price
Cons:
Nothing has reared it ugly head yet!

I bought this lens when I only had a 20D and I felt the equiv. FOV of a 135mm lens on this body was in a kind of a 'no mans land' area.
Now I have a 5D I absolutely adore the working distance this gives for head and shoulder shots. The un-processed Raws from this camera/lens combo are almost good enough to use straight off.

The price is reasonable for what you get and it's light enough to use all day long without feeling any strain.
