Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

Review Date: Jun 12, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp
Cons:
No IS??

The best for unobstrusive street photography, or portrait. Much better than any zoom. The lens deserves its reputation, and its relatively inexpensive.

Pros: Light, relatively small, relatively fast, sharp, sharp, sharp, and cheap cheap cheap
Cons:
None that I can see

This lens is barely slower than the much more expensive/heavy 1.2 L version. It is extremely sharp, and is a perfect focal length on a FF 5DII. A great portrait lens, and at an unbelievable price. Some say it is probably the best non-L lens in the Canon lineup.

Pros: Sharp, nice contrast, very nice focal length and fast. Pretty sharp wide open
Cons:
None

Very nice lens that can be used quite universally for landscape, portrait, street photography, photo journalism. If I were to have only one and only one lens, I'd have this one stick permanently on my camera. Sure, it does not have the build of a Zeiss, but it has quick autofocus. This is my go-anuywhere lens.
