Avoiding who was right and who was wrong in these circumstances, the Priest should not have made the ultimate threat to walk away from the wedding, no wonder the bride looks mortified, unforgivable

 maybe they,  the bride and groom, will  get something out of it...  like the one couple who got married on the Colbert report.

What happend to the couple who got married on the Colbert Report? By the way, shouldn't a priest be used to camera clickings as his profession comes with this sort of public interest? To me the priests threat to walk away is a "No-Go" in regard of the feelings of the bride. She was for sure shocked and mortified - just at the moment that should be her finest in her life. I feel sorry for her and am missing the priests empathy. No matter what the photographer did, the priests threat is unforgivable.

Dear Joshua.
Just my Idea, Now past 2-3 years, The Camera are  design so great at Low ISO up to 1600 with minimum noise, We do not need wide Opening of F. Stop any way, Except to get the total Back ground Blur, I use 2-3 stop above Total  Open Wide  F. stop of the Lens that I use ( If I use 85 mm 1.2 L II, I will use 1.8,  or 2.0 in the dark area), and still get the best sharpest of the Lens in the dark area.
Just My Idea.
But I love to  use F. stop at  1.2 ( by set up Canon at AV. mode, and ISO = 100) with  Cir. PL, 4 ND, or 8 ND.  Filter in the sunshine day and get rid of the unwanted Background. Please see the photos below.
Nice to talk to you.

Your pictures are awsome, you definitely deserve every single lens you have. Kudos! I will try to make use of your tips to get the same results.

At f8 your 50 f1.4 is sharper across the frame than the macro or the 135.

That well may be but I use my lenses most of the time wide open as I prefer short times to avoid camera shaking. And to realise short times when light is poor you need wide open lenses, no chance for f/8. Also the corners are of a lesser interest to me, therefore no need for small f-numbers. I want lenses that are sharp as sharp can be wide open (in the middle). The sharpest lens only at small f-numbers is of no use for me.

Which I have both of them

You have both of them? You lucky basterd!  ;D

Thank you for the MTF tables, I really think both are just fine for me. I am looking forward to order the 100 L IS as soon as I will get my check from my new employer.

If you want "a razor sharp lens, the sharpest one", it is likely to be the 200/2L or the 24/3.5L TS-E.  But I agree with the advice to pick the lens most suitable for your needs.

Damn, this TS-E 24 seems to be a really freaking piece of monster glass, the filter is 82 mm compared to "only" 72 mm on the EF 85/1.2L which itself is already a big chunk of glass!
But unfortunately it is only an E without the F and I rely very often on autofocus.

The mentioned 200/2 L is without IS too long on APS-C to be used hand-held at availabe light in twilights or at nights imho.

The 135L is not weather sealed

For sharpness, you'll be splitting hairs comparing the 135L with the 100L. Sharpness with both lenses is outstanding.

Splitting hairs aka pixel peeping is my hobby!   8)

That exactly was my point.

Both lenses are very sharp and distinguishing between the two is extremely tough, even at pixel level detail

Thank you, so I will go for the 100 L IS USM Macro as I like macro ability almost as much as sharpness.

Both are sharp enough, you should pick the most suitable for your needs.

I was told this so many times before when I got my Sigma 30/1.4 or my EF 50/1.4 and you know what? Both are soft like jelly at maximum aperture.  >:(
The only thing that can cure my trauma caused by this soft lenses is a razor-sharp lens, the sharpest one. No compromises no more. And when I say sharp I mean sharp not only at small apertures but of course at maximum aperture. Until now I only heard about sharp lenses but never saw them. Just another myth on forums?

 and of course , if you need weather sealing

Both are L lenses and so I thought both are weather sealed? Am I wrong?

I was told that macro lenses are always sharper compared to non macro lenses but I was also told that the EF 135 L is called the "Lord of the Red Rings" because it is so incredible sharp, so which one of them is sharper, especially at maximum aperture?

The Germans would have called the L lens "Wunderwaffe"! --> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wunderwaffe ;D
