I posted this on the 5DIII thread - but the lens made the shot IMO... The sun was already down - just dusk lighting to the rear and left side... On second thought, shooting at 1250 ISO made it possible - thanks 5DIII!  * 1/200 * f/2.8 * +1/3 EV * 1250 ISO * -2/3 on the little 90EX for fill *
Nice and very sharp ... no wonder the 135 f/2 is called the Lord of the Red Rings.

Fantastic sharpness, and that little bit of fill flash is nicely subtle.

Thanks for the posts and comments in this thread (and other 135 threads). It helped me choose a prime.
I was considering the 85L, 135L and 200 2,8L, but landed on the 135 L. I’m very pleased with it.

But the challenge is how to bring the photographer up to the level of the 135 ;)

Some samples.

Not claiming to be a photographer, but it's a strong hobby of mine!

I hate to say it, but you do have a valid point here. In my defense, I was trying to setup this shot on the fly using the laggy EOS remote app on my iPhone.  Trying to position yourself in mirror position using a tiny screen that doesn't refresh very quickly while shooting wide open with the 135L isn't the easiest proposition in the world.

I hope I would have gotten it right if I had been behind the camera, but hey, no guarantees.  ;)
