Test results for two Canon lenses posted on SLRgear.com!|

Uber-tester Jim has cranked out test results for a number of lenses, but Dave and Shawn have been too crazed dealing with the SLR announcements (and all the other review backlog) this month to get the results posted...
Test tech extraordinaire Jim has been busy in the lab this last month, and has generated test results for a fair number of lenses. The hold-up this time has been that Dave and Shawn were kept pretty frantic, trying to get full reports up ASAP on the new Nikon D80 and Canon Rebel XTi, over on Imaging Resource. That overload has passed now, but Dave's getting ready to leave for a long-overdue vacation. He *promises* though, that he'll get test results posted for at least another 4 or 5 lenses before he takes off.
Today, we have results on two superb Canon lenses, the Canon 85mm f/1.2L II, and Canon 135mm f/2L. Both are easily in the "exceptional" category, and the 135mm is even in the sub-$1,000 price bracket.
Stay tuned, we should have more lens test results going up over the next few days. Jim himself will be on vacation for 10 days starting this Wednesday, but once he and Dave both get back and reconnected, there should be a fairly steady stream of new lens tests through the end of the year.
