Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Sep 28, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Great zoom range on a full-frame body. Nice colors and contrast. Fast lens. Low noise AF
AF a bit slow compared to e.g. 135mm f/2.0. Old lens

On my 5D it has a great zoom range. The lens produces nice colors and a great contrast. The AF is not as accurate and fast as I'd like it to be. It takes a bit of time for the lens to really get objects in focus so I need to take some extra shots just to be sure I end up with the right focus. Otherwise the lens is highly recommended if you can find it cheap second hand.

Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

Review Date: Sep 12, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $780.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Extremely sharp at all apertures. Great color rendition and perfect bokeh.
none whatsoever

Together with my Canon 5D this is a perfect portrait lens. Performance is consistent @ all apertures and the results are stunning. Highly recommended
