Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

ef135mmf_2l_1_
Review Date: Jul 18, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $800.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Build, fast, light weight and sharp
Cons:
Demand a steady hand in low light for sharp results.

This is a very sharp lens. The focal length works very well on a 5D, but a little too long on a crop sensor. The bokeh is beautiful due to large aperture and long focal length. Colors and contrast are great too.

The drawback is that this lens need very good technique to perform well in low light when the shutter speed is low. Because the DOF is thin when wide open, you need a steady hand to get sharp results.

I give it a 9/10 build quality because it is not weather seal. There is no rubber ring at the lens mount area.
