Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

ef135mmf_2l_1_
Review Date: May 19, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $935.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Beautiful Bokeh, Lighting fast AF, F2 is sharp, very affordable.
Cons:
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.
Cons:
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.
