I love this lens.

Last night I was out after dark, and this lens is a joy once the sun goes down. I'll post an image or two later.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

Kernuak, those shots are gorgeous.  And sct69, that's a very lovely shot you posted.  Please post more!

Here's a shot of some autumn leaves I liked:

Wonderful shots folks!
I am looking to pick up my copy of this lens next weekend.
Does anyone have experience with this lens shooting indoor sports? I will be pairing it with an external flash (on 5D mk ll) due to poor lighting, and this will be replacing my 85mm f/1.8 for awhile. Samples perhaps?

I've used it for several dance performances -- even more demanding than sports. Fast movement, low and bad light, no flash allowed. I put it on a tripod, set f/2.0 and ISO 800 and shot at opportune moments. I won't post those, but here's a gallery if you want to look at some:

Oops, had the wrong URL. The one above is correct for the 135. Sorry, folks.

Another older shot from my135L ISO 400 F2.5 1/1600 yes I put it in a water housing and go swimming with it. I LOVE this lens I should use it more than I actually do, but every time I do use it I fall in love all over again.

Really really nice stuff there from everyone! Distant Star, those night shots are very nice.  And funkboy, I like your landscapes very much.  I love the richness of colour this lens produces.

Here's a recent shot from an autumn outing at Izumo Taisha:

My city in Japan has a river that winds throughout it with a daily boat tour popular with tourists:

I like how the depth of field turned out in this shot.  Taken at Dazaifu, Fukuoka, Japan.

I find the easiest way is to copy the BBcode from Flickr directly into a post, via the share link.
