with all the great Canon Store refurb deals doing on of late, I thought about picking up the 135 F/2L. With the sale, it would be $696 including shipping, which is a terrific deal.
That lens has a stellar reputation: this forum and the tests/reviews I've read agree that this lens is an impressive performer.
My only pause in snatching one up is that I already own the stellar 70-200 F/2.8L IS II, and I have to wonder. Is being one stop quicker really that valuable? Is the bokeh that
magical? Is it that extra-bit sharper over one of the sharpest zooms made?
Thoughts? Knowing that I have the 70-200, if I picked the 135 up, would it just sit in my bag for dedicated portraiture work?
If it helps with your answer:
- Besides the 70-200, I use a 5D3 with a 24-70 F/4 IS, 28 F/2.8 IS, 40 F/2.8, 50 F/1.4, 100 F/2.8L IS and a 2x T/C.
- Enthusiast only -- not a pro.
I appreciate the guidance!
