Reviews & Community QA

Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Telephoto Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bokeh God! Now I know why this 23 year old design is still the bokeh monster. Incredibly buttery bokeh! Amazingly sharp at f2.0. Light weight in its category. Fast focus for its age. Started to love this as soon as i took my first picture with this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Fast and Outstanding Image Quality Previously, I was exclusively using a 50mm f/1.2L. But it was time to finally add a second lens. I already had been eyeing this lens for many years, so already knew of its capabilities and reputation. I did though rent both the 70-200 f/2.8L III and the f/4L II flavor. The former though was too heavy for my liking. And the latter wasn't fast enough for my needs. Thus, I purchased this 135mm f/2L. I primarily do portrait work with speedlites, indoor sports (with shutter at least 1/250s), or outdoor work with faster shutter speeds. Thus, the lack of image stabilization is a non-issue. I'm currently using this lens with a 5D IV. It works beautifully and only a tad heavier than the 50mm f/1.2. I can easily hand-hold, and in a pinch, even hold with a single hand. It is indeed sharper than the 50mm, even when both are at f/2. I have not yet checked to see if it needs any AF micro adjustments. The background blur is insane! That's a look I really enjoy. So this pairs up nicely with the wide 50 in terms of that certain background rendering. As shown in the attached photo, now that I plan to do more portrait work, I needed a longer lens to avoid distortion. The vignetting doesn't affect my style of work. But when needed, incredibly easy to remove in Lightroom. In summary, this is an incredible lens. Lightweight, fast and outstanding image quality. If primes meet your needs, definitely give this lens a strong look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I Could Only Have One Prime Lens... If I could only have one prime lens, this would be it. This lens shares legendary status with the 85L for its ability to create super dreamy bokeh. Ideal for portrait use, but also sports, as it focuses super fast and accurately! It is very, very sharp, one of the sharpest lenses still. I really enjoy how compact the lens is, which makes it nice to take to sporting or other events. This refurbished lens is like-new in every way, and was a fantastic bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes! Best Lens Ever - For Sure :-) IF I could only bring one lens with me on a daily basis, this would be that one lens! I cannot say enough about this lens, you will not be disappointed with your purchase and the beautiful photographs and portraits you will capture. Watch on You Tube Canon 135 Lord of the Red Rings

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now the best lens in my kit I had this lens on my "bucket list" for some time now and recently bought it used from a local photographer. All the reviews and videos I've seen about this lens informed me that this was one of the best out there for creamy backgrounds and super sharp focus. Boy it does not disappoint! When you shoot this thing wide open the background melts into a dreamy swirl of color that allows the subject to really pop! I have several other Canon lenses, but when I want to isolate a subject and make the background a beautiful, creamy blur, this is the lens I reach for. I'm so glad I purchased this lens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YOU COULD SHAVE WITH THIS LENS... ...this lens is THAT sharp. I took this lens for a "walk" and came back with some unbelievable shots...they were that clear, in focus and super sharp with THE smoothest, buttery bokeh I have ever seen. This lens does NOT have image stabilization, so you WILL need to either shoot with a high shutter speed OR use a tripod for best results. I do have to admit this lens it a bit much for a "walk in the woods"...just give yourself a lot of room for the focal length, for portraits.
