Lenses / Re: 100mm 2.8L Macro IS as a portrait lens

Also, not every portrait is shot wide open. I don't think you're going to get much bokeh if you're shooting in a studio with a black backdrop shooting at f/11.

RL, people are able to create equally good portraits with either the 135L or the 100L because gear doesn't matter.

Ditch the kid. Put the $1500 towards the 24mm TS-E L. Have a blast.

IS - one of the topics where it seems like no one has any idea what they're talking about.

Haha, nice debate I stirred here. For the record, if I could afford both the 70-200 II and the 85L I'd definitely shoot this with the 85. Obviously a zoom isn't needed in this situation. And anyone who can't shoot a portrait in focus at 7.1 with the 85L shouldn't be shooting the president.

Well, anyway, as Vincent Laforet says in his blog, there is NO reason to own the 85L if you're not shooting it between 1.2 - 2.0, as you might as well own the 70-200 II for only a few hundred $ more, with the ability to have the versatility of the zoom, much faster auto-focus, IS and pretty much equal sharpness.

If you can afford both, well, I'm jealous of you.

And wouldn't have to worry about messing up focus on the president.

I'm just jealous I can't afford the 85L, but can get the exact same shot with my 70-200 L f/4....

Yeah, my point is he should have been using the 70-200 II.

85L at 7.1. What a waste!!!

Canon's tilt-shift lenses have hard stops.

Was Jupiter closer than infinity????
