Well you guys are just too convincing and I am just too weak!  I just ordered the 135L from BH... :P

Get ready for no other lens to be on your camera :) Once you put it on you will never want to take it off. I kid you not it was on for months when i got mine. It really is the best deal for a L lens.

My new revised weather isolation technique which shall be named "Breakfast Bag" finally reached its ultimate form. You can only hardly distinguish it from a non-isolated 135L.

Spiffy idea.  But be sure not to store your lens like that.  The plastic will prevent any humidity & condensation trapped in there from drying out, which could lead to rust, fungus, etc. over time.  Especially if you go from cold winter outdoors to a hot humid place like a crowded restaurant, it'll probably be kinda soggy inside if you don't leave the camera in the bag & let it warm up gradually over time.

My absolute fav lens period !!! Colors, speed, bokeh smoothness, sharp as a tack everything about it is just killer. First 6 months I had it  never left my camera.



Its still my go to when i can only take one lens with me. Great street/Cinematic lens as well.

Of course I ripped that off right afterwards.
