    Hi All

    I'm thinking of adding the Canon 135 f2 L to my outfit for portraits as i find myself getting more people asking for them or their pets.
    Does anyone use this lens and what are their thoughts on it.

    all points of view are welcome (before i blow my spending money !!)

    Thanks for the links....nice pics from this one i think

    Seany - i have the 50 f1.4 and love it but it is a little short for some of my needs, i considered the 85 f1.2 but wasnt convinced it was the right one for me...possibly a bit short. the 135 seems like the best choice i am having a play with a demo version on tuesday.

    Well for the price of the 85L you could get the 135 and the 85 1.8

    I notice you have the 70-200 2.8 IS that's a fine portrait lens, though it's pretty heavy. Are you not gettting the results you want with the zoom?
