Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

Review Date: May 19, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $935.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Beautiful Bokeh, Lighting fast AF, F2 is sharp, very affordable.
no Image Stabilization

Picked this baby up after reading countless reviews that it's Canon's sharpest lens and has some killer bokeh, oh, and it's under $1000! Worth every penny and I plan on using it all summer for outdoor portraits. F2 is sharp and probably my favorite aperture.

If you're converting your zooms to primes like I am, the 135L needs to be in your bag.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Review Date: Aug 26, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: Sharp images, decent bokeh for such a cheap lens.
AF Hunts in low light. AF is somewhat noisy(atleast mine is)

I bought a Canon 28-135mm lens last April(2005) from the fredmiranda forums, and the seller was nice enough to throw in the 50mm 1.8 II for free since I was so new do DSLR photography. What a nice guy. Anyways, considering this lens was free, its the ONLY lens I use for portraits at the moment. Its pretty cheap if you were to actually buy it too, and I would have paid for it if I had to. Nice lens, so-so build quality, but a must for every camera bag.
