Well, some stacked in-store deals & discounts at my local shop resulted in an attractive final price (relative to MSRP) on this just-released, hard to find lens, so I caved and got it.

But I'm still hoping Canon makes a 70-135/2 to truly complement the 28-70/2!

I'm coming from years with the EF 135/2 and while it was still good on mirrorless, wasn't a perfect transition (lower fps rate due to its age, lower contrast, sharpness and flare resistance compared to my growing RF lineup).

I can live with the RF's size and weight, but don't like how large the

To answer my own question, I was going through equipment cases and came across a Mamiya M77 No.2 hood, to my great pleasure. It's a well made collapsible 77mm rubber hood, and I happened to have an 82-77 step down ring, too. Unfortunately that hood is no longer available. I'll use it for the time being in place of the supplied hood. I also ordered a 77mm metal hood that's about 1" deep to try. I know it's the wrong size and quite shallow, but it may also serve dual purpose on my 70-200.

On my RF 70-200/2.8L IS Iím using the same hood as the one that comes with the RF 50/1.2L it fits perfectly and locks on well. I tried the hood from my RF 85/1.2L on the RF 135/1.8L IS but it doesnít fit quite right.

Yeah, I use the EF 85/1.4's hood on my 70-200, since I already have it.

First real use of the 135/1.8 today at a couple events. Below are some random SOOC photos from a dinner reception. I think all wide open.

After a quick browse, the lens is definitely sharp! Also good contrast, color, etc. As expected. Pretty well balanced on the camera (R6II w/grip), focuses fast, IS seems good. Overall a very clean look and definitely blows out backgrounds, as expected. I did notice though that there was some focus 'flutter' where I'd get a few OOF photos in a sequence as people moved around a bit. I used a lot of face/eye detection/tracking. It's possible sometimes the camera didn't really lock on to the eye, which I observed at times with just a box around the face. I also feel Canon's eye detection/tracking has a tendency to select the eye that's farther away too often, which with a lens such as this with very shallow depth of field, becomes very noticeable when the near eye is OOF. I noted some reviews on B&H stated some minor focus tracking inconsistency. Need to use it more to see if this continues. Has anyone else had such experiences?

I rented this lens and for over a month I was a mere click away from buying multiple times, but also a click away from the 85L...yet somehow I ended up checking out with the 10-20mm lol

If I were still shooting weddings, I believe the new 85 would have made it to my doorstep before the 135, but for anyone doing outdoor portrait work, I don't know if it can get much better than this 135. The old EF 135 was fantastic, but the IS rather than the f/1.8 is what does it for me. This lens will be around for a long, long time.

For weddings I use the 28-70 F/2 with 85 1.2 combo indoors and 28-70 F/2 with 135 1.8 outdoors. No better set up out there.

Even though I have this 135/1.8, I'm still waiting for Canon to release a 70-135/2 to pair with the 28-70.
