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 Construction is solid but with tiny AF switches, no weather sealing and a little outdated lenshood witch is a little hard to install (rough-running thread).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: 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!

Pros: Stamp, Af, colors, vintage, very artistic.

Cons: The age for those who love to keep up with the times, for those who love the folklore of half vintage tones can be said that it has no flaws.

Opinion: I had the big one, then I go on the statistics of the most used juza lenses and I see that despite the fact that at the time I had both lenses, I shot more with the 135 mm ... objectively found by juza statistics on my profile . And why? I bought this lens again because I sincerely think that today beyond the excellent value for money you can not find lenses with wonderful imperfections like this . Not even the Big One has such a personality . I flanked this lens to the 50 L 1.2 , on Fuji Xt1 I took a 23 mm f 2 wr to have a mediocre 35 mm for street . Instead the L lenses I make them rejuvenate with canon's Mirrorless system, with a humble Rp that like Af is reactive on these wonderful lenses.

Pros: Price, sharpness (from f 4 onwards), fast and precise AF, blurry, construction, weight and size.

Cons: Sharpness far from exemplary at All Opening (partly even at f 2.8), indecent backlight hold. Of course it is not stabilized, but this is not a defect since IS did not exist in 1996.

Opinion: Bought by B&H in early May 1996, then six months before it arrived in Italy, and from the first tests I noticed that it was only equal, as it is sharp, compared to my Canon FDn 100/2, and much lower than the latter in terms of yield in backlight (for me priority), weight, size and price. In short, a fine lens, especially at the time of its introduction, but certainly not epochal as it is always heard, and this, I repeat, was objectively evident as early as 1996. Nowadays the comparison with the competition is embarrassing, since it has been overtaken by all competitors.

Pros: Unmistakable yield, AF, Colors, Blurred, Size/Weight, Optical Quality....

Cons: Nothing to declare....

Opinion: Incredible lens, for the portrait has an immediately recognizable and unique stamp, but I do not want to add what already said by those who preceded me.... I was lucky through a friend here on Juza to try 85L 1.2 II and this "jewel" on 135L, without taking anything away from the Big One.... fabulous optics, the 135L bewitched me. Bought and tried, it did not convince me at the beginning... then it was immediately love, maybe as a focal is a little long (in some cases) but just take a little measures, and where there is the possibility to move and have space, gives incredible shots, the AF also on my 6D is responsive and precise. I'm just a fan, but you can immediately understand the quality of this lens... just open a file, and you'll be blown away.... try to believe !!!! For a portraitist it's a lens to have... Point!!!!
