I have a 135L that is fun to use, but I can't pick out the 135L images from the 85/1.8 images without cheating.The way I can tell the difference between the 85/1.8 and the 135/2 is the bokeh. The 85's bokeh is a teeny tiny itsy bit nervous where as the 135's is smooth as butter.
Seriously nice! Fantastic!One more in the same vein. 10 sec. exposure (obviously!) and second curtain sync.
Nicely executed. Photography done right
I am thinking about getting this lens. My question though for those of you who have it, concerns the tripod ring. Did you purchase one? Or do you attach your tripod to the body. Canon selling the tripod ring for an additional 300 bucks, sort of negates the cost advantage this lens has over the 100-400.
I want to fix the focus performance with a speedlite AF-assist beam but do not want to get new problems. So has anybody else seen issues with the new firmware?
the other niceties might be; bokeh, IS, internal focusing (lens stays the same length), weather sealing etc were enough for me to get the L.I'm pretty sure the non-L focuses internally as well.
RE: PoE via GigE, according to Wikipedia it provides maximum of 25.5 Watts with up to 57 volts at 600 mAmp. Not sure how that corresponds to the power draw of a 5d3/1DX type camera. Other thing to think about though, is that they then need to add the charging circuit stuff into the camera, which adds a bit of complexity and cost to the camera. Not saying it's a lot, but it's something more to add. Maybe use PoE as an alternate power source alongside the battery.
