Canon EF 135mm f/2.8 with Softfocus

Review Date: Mar 20, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp and very small
Cons:
No USM

I bought this lens and another prime 24/2.8 because could not afford a quality zoom and these lenses are very sharp and deliver a lot of fine details. I tested them against my friends (a professional photographer with a bunch of L lenses) 70-200L and 16-35L respectively and the primes at 2.8 were sharper than zooms. At around 4.0 and smaller they performed the same and i was very satisfied with that. I wish it had USM motor but I guess the price would be different then.

Pros: Very sharp for a lens around 300$
Cons:
A little noisy

Tested it against friends 16-35L and at 2.8 this little lens was obviously sharper, at smaller than 4.0 they looked the same.
