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 Construction is solid but with tiny AF switches, no weather sealing and a little outdated lenshood witch is a little hard to install (rough-running thread).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: Image quality, f2, L series, Built-in hood, Fixed lens.

Cons: Unstabilized, "high" fire distance.

Opinion: Lens purchased a few months ago after trying other telephoto lenses (70-200 f4, 70-300). I fell in love with it immediately. Lens "of other times". It makes you go back in time. Colors, for me superb, warm. Focal "strange" to understand. For me it was love at first sight. An advantage/disadvantage: it is a fixed lens. To take pictures you have to use your legs and look for the shot according to the landscape. The zoom is practical and versatile, definitely, but, for me, the unmistakable quality of fixed lenses always pays off. Lens that I recommend to fans "of the old" and as an investment. If you find it on 600 euros, I wouldn't think twice. it is appropriate to say: "Old but gold".

Pros: Incredible optics, becomes stabilized with the current Mirrorless

Cons: Management of a fixed 135

Opinion: Purchased in 2023, it is a lens that I have always craved and I have always waited to buy. I recently made the transition from Reflex to Mirrorless and I decided to make this purchase too. Obviously used. One of the most comfortable things about Mirrorless technology is the stabilization of the sensor, which gave me the opportunity to start seriously exploiting many fixed lenses by specifically choosing non-stabilized ones. I must say, that despite the project is from 1996, this perspective behaves very well even with modern machines (R6-R7), returning absolutely exceptional results. Precise focus, incredible sharpness, crazy colors, wonderful blur! From my point of view this perspective has no flaws, and what once could have been (lack of stabilization), with modern machines is solved beautifully. In fact, for those who use Mirrorless, you will obviously find a stabilized optics. The only real complication is the fact of being a fixed 135, not easy to manage in all situations, but this applies to any fixed lens. It must be said that we are faced with an optics intended for the portrait par excellence and, in my opinion, especially for half-length and close-up shots, even if in the whole figures it still manages to detach the subject from the background in an incredible way. The cleanliness of detail and the clarity of the images are really excellent, as well as the color rendering even in very difficult situations and with precise casts; The complexion is always very precise and the shades of color returned perfectly. Reading some other opinions around the web, some complained about the minimum focusing distance, but I find that 90 cm for a 135 mm is more than enough for the use for which it was built. In short, I was absolutely enthusiastic about the choice I finally managed to make, finding myself an incredible and moreover "stabilized" optics. Even on the R7 (32 megapixels on APS-C), it does not suffer at all from the density of the sensor (which for example the 24-105 L a little bit does) returning fantastic images! On the R6, instead, we are at poetry! As for the use for sports activities and action photography in general, I found the autofocus very fast, but its focal length makes it preferable for more indoor than outdoor use; If I had to photograph a volleyball game I would definitely choose it, for an 11-a-side football match I don't know. But in any case it is simply a matter of choosing the focal length, because for speed of focus and image rendering you go with your eyes closed.

Pros: The images it gives, AF, sharpness

Cons: Minimum focusing distance, it is not stabilized.

Opinion: Optics dated 1996 and despite this makes many modern optics feel old! Aesthetically appealing with that gigantic front lens compared to the barrel (72mm filters). Lightning-fast and precise AF that allow you to use it for sports, both outdoors and indoors, day and night given the brightness. At f/2 it is great for portraits, closing from 2.8 increases sharpness and changes footprint becoming almost macro. Almost, in fact, because of the excessive minimum focusing distance. The f/2 yield makes it a miniature 85mm f/1.2. It is duplicable with medium quality. The only real lack you will feel is the absence of stabilization but not always, only in some contexts. I recommend use on rooms with a good grip such as 5D or 6D

Pros: Sharpness already at f2, compactness, weight, speed

Cons: Without hood it suffers a little, no IS

Opinion: Taken after years that I admired it and it was love at first sight. It has a sharpness already at TA and does not disfigure on the 30mpx of the R. Without a hood and with the sun, it needs the hood. CA I never noticed. I also use it in the closed diaphragm studio with extension tubes for macros (with 0.9m you don't do so much) and I feel good about it (avoiding having an additional lens for macros). The lack of IS sometimes makes itself felt but you can't ask for everything. Then now the price is very advantageous compared to the Sigma 135 which weighs twice as much and costs twice as much! I would only change it for a future RF 135 f2 IS macro. A dream!
