  • Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Wonderful, smooth bokeh. Sharp without being harsh. Contrasty, saturated, nice colours. Fast.
    No IS

    I bought it for its bokeh. The background blur is amazingly creamy with this lens. It is sharp but somehow not that analytic way as a macro lens. That's why I really enjoy shooting portraits with it. Sharp but smooth at the same time. Smooth but contrasty. Contrasty but not harsh. Well saturated but neutral. Neutral yet very nice colours. Best lens for portraiture I've ever tried. AF is accurate and very fast. Build quality: excellent. CAs: a little in the OOF area - not disturbing anyway.
