Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

Review Date: Apr 8, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $750.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Super sharp wide open. An instant classic. Solid build quality. Incredible value for an 'L' lens.

A real gem on a FF body, deservingly one of the "holy trinity" of Canon primes. Fast silent USM and razor sharp at f2, why bother shooting it at any other aperture? Bokeh is amazing and same with the colour and contrast. Who needs zooms with this and its 200L brother. Black is much more inconspicuous too allowing you to get "the shot". Get this lens, you won't regret it.

Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM

Review Date: Apr 8, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Lightweight, fast silent USM, great FF walkaround lens esp for low light indoor. Good bokeh.

Looking for a lightweight lens for everyday use, look no further. Paired with a FF 5dmk2 this has been on my camera exclusively for the past month. The brick (24-70L) is now gathering dust. It's perfect for indoor situations when lighting can get pretty dark. 28mm is great for tight quarters and it focuses very close at 25cm. No problems focusing, it's fast and silent. Bokeh is really pleasant too.

I was debating between this and the 50mm 1.4, and I'm really glad I went with the 28mm. 50mm is a little too long for indoor candids. With the 28mm you can always move closer whereas with the 50mm you can't always move back.
