Is it possible to sway your decision for a 5Dc + 50mm 1.8/1.4 instead?

DEAD THREAD.

No, it isn't, you and me just posted :-) ... and it seemed the appropriate thread for this piece of information. Will surely get attention because you cannot unsubscribe to threads in this forum :->

The resurrection has arrived to CR forums.  :P

I love my 135L but I'm not so sure if it was designed with acoustic's in mind.  ;D

The 61-Point AF system from canon is the very best AF ever devised in modern 35mm AF Cameras as of the latest firmware update  ;).

After their serious loss of market shares to Nikon in 2012, I expect Canon to return with a vengeance next year for their camera releases. If they still do not fix their sensor problems by 2013, they can kiss their no. 1 market share status goodbye forever.

Canon could hold off nikon if they release a stunning lens line-up too irresistible making Nikon's sensors irrelevant. Afterall, Canon has always bragged about their superior lens line-up.

14-24L
35L II
50L II
85L III
135mm F/1.8L IS USM
100-400L II

If these lenses are released next year, I'll be very comfortable with canon.

A pro aimed EOS M would be nice.

A 7D2 is way overdue.

And the BIG MP camera will be here soon.

Let's see some innovation canon.

If you must have the ultimate wide angle lens period.

Zeiss 15mm F/2.8. Its the very best made. Bar none.

I love this lens.  It's small, fast, focuses much faster than the 1.2 and it is a great value.  What's not to love?

I prefer the 100mm F/2.

85L II = 135L

They're are very, very close in producing great photos. So close I consider them Equal.

The 100L is almost $100 cheaper and you get macro and IS. IMO it's a better value portrait lens.

The 135L is teh portrait lens. Its a stop faster and has more compression. Plus, you can get used copies for around 750$.

Do you feel that the 135L is the best portrait lens for APS-C?  A typical headshot at 216mm FF-equivalent needs about 12 feet from the subject.

Both lenses are very long on APS-C but I used the 135L with great success on my XSI & 7D.

Hi Everybody,

I'm looking into getting a 100 f/2.8L or 135mm f/2L, to do some portrait/ macro work. I won't be using the Macro a ton, but would like the feature. As of today, my budget only allows for one or the other, so I could use your help in deciding between the two.

Right now, I'm using a 24-70 f/2.8L Mark I, and a 50mm 1.4 on a 50D Body.

Recommendations?

The 135L is the best portrait lens for the money. You can get pretty close for light macro work with extension tubes if you really want.

If you do more macro than portraits, The 100L is for you.

The 135L is a magic Black Tube with AF. I prefer it over the 70-200MM for light excursions.

Interestingly thats what I am willing to pay for the 200 F2   :P

Interesting, I didn't know you could get a 200mm F/2 IS for 2799$.
