Pros: excellent sharpness and contrast, very pleasing bokeh, solid construction, comparatively low price

Cons: no weather sealing, small AF switches

Opinion: This lens is one of the best Canon L prime lenses below 200mm. Image quality is excellent, with very high sharpness wide open and incredible sharpness from f2.5 onwads! Colors and contrast are also excellent and the rendered bokeh is one of the best and harmonic bokehs you will find in this focal range. AF is extremely fast and very accurate - it is one of my lenses with the best "in focus" hit rate! Construction is solid but with tiny AF switches, no weather sealing and a little outdated lenshood witch is a little hard to install (rough-running thread). Compared to its excellent image quality the price is comparatively low!

Pros: Optical quality, discrete AF, excellent speed even on Sony system

Cons: Definitely cheap construction

Opinion: A lens that approaches the 85 1.2 with regard to the "character" with which it inevitably manages to mark a photograph. They're not fetish fantasies, they're reality. Unfortunately from the online photos you can not really appreciate that stamp, being often altered by post-production more or less intrusive. You realize the art of this lens when you shoot a subject, and simply by taking advantage of natural light you can pull out a picture. It is here that in fact the "vintage" lenses (of which this 135mm fully inherits the philosophy) give the best. That "pastiness" to which many refer, is the right compromise between sharpness and creaminess. Just think that the manufacturers to meet the market's SHARPNESSSSSSS demand, have started to produce lenses with apodization element , which do nothing but "blunt" the image from mid-frame onwards (but eating the light passing through ), so that the center is crisp but at the same time the peripheral bokeh is creamy and pasty. The best lens that embodies this philosophy is the Sony 100mm GM, but to do so it has a 5.6 T (which completely limits its use at night without flash ). Personally, I think it makes much more sense to use a less correct lens with important openings, than an engineering monster on which architects must be installed to "simulate" the vintage yield. Returning to this 135mm, it must alas emphasize how the construction is outdated, and the feeling of "plastic" to the touch is really strong. Nothing to do with the new series of Canon L, in which we tried to raise the bar of constructive quality. Note how used with sigma mc-11 on third-generation Sony bodies, it loses absolutely nothing compared to using it on a Canon body.

Pros: Sharpness, Blur, AF Speed, Color, Three-Dimensionality, plane break, Microcontrast and color, Construction

Cons: Non-stabilized, Focal Length indoors (a bit long)

Opinion: Amazing Lens, the 135mm L. If you think that this lens is born as a project in the far 1996, this says a lot about the constructive superiority/awkward optics of Canon compared to the competition, which will surely have Mirrorless with sensors equipped with great dynamic range and modern AF but from Side lenses and optics still has to make it to the road.... The construction is excellent, sturdy and well balanced, not too flashy as it could be the 70-200, so much so that it can go unnoticed if used without lens hood in different situations of reportage/street and travel. The AF is fast and it gets even quicker if you move the ring nut over 0.90-infinity, the sharpness is outstanding already at F2, closing becomes impressive. The colors are beautiful (classic Canon rendition) and the really good microcontrast. A lens that was created for the portrait set, the first/first few planes, the shooting with outdoor models, weddings and social reportage. It Gives the best of itself in ceremonies/weddings where the detachment of the subject from the background and the blurred very soft and progressive, give the image a unique stamp. In my opinion the only lens in the house Canon that has a higher blurred is the ambitious 85mm 1.2, with however minimal differences and with a very, very similar character. Today in 2019, a lens that can tell its even with Canon sensors above 22MPixel: I use it on 5DMARK3 and 5dmark4 and it seems born for these machines that manages to squeeze up to the last Megapixels. The Only drawback was the lack of stabilization (but it would have been a different perspective and would have lost its lightness). There is also to be considered that the focal is not short, so in the Churches in the halls and interiors, it would sometimes be more congenial a focal under 100mm. To have ABSOLUTELY in outfit

Pros: Sharpness, blur, colors, lightning-fast MAF

Cons: Nothing to report

Opinion: On this optic there is little to say. It takes some time to understand the possibilities and the correct way of use but once familiarized with this lens is difficult to detach from the machine. Personally I nicknamed it the 135 F 2.8 which also drops to F2. I find in fact that closed one stop has the best yield, favoring the portraits with half a bust or American plane, compared to the narrower ones, where it is not always necessary to open the diaphragm at most. If you want instead a more dreamlike, slightly softer, you can open the diaphragm to the maximum, but paying attention to the focus and taking care to manage the distance from the subject well and the relative framing obtained to avoid out of focus Annoying. His bread are the full-length portraits but also in those half-bust you can use it well. Also tried on APS-C, it is long but excellent on the outside and the yield is not affected. Bought with some perplexity related to its possible use, I will never sell it!!! To have in a Canon kit, especially if you like portraits.

Pros: High sharpness even at TA, contained dimensions, excellent construction, used price, colors and superb yield, very high contrast

Cons: Focal non generalist and not for every occasion

Opinion: Taken used in excellent condition (paid €500.) and I use it on A7III + Sigma MC-11 and it works great, I was really impressed by the optical rendition and the high contrast even to really gorgeous TA. In my case for portrait use and some landscaping detail is perfect, I would not do sports events but for the rest (at least on A7III) is perfect and the eye focus mode works perfectly even at great distances. Really a superb optical rendition despite the project's company! Highly recommended!
