Adaptions of the Reciprocal 'Rule' for modern sensors are all very nice, but in many cases have to be ignored.  For example, panning with a propellor-powered aircraft needs a shutter down around 1/60 or 1/80 for a nice prop disk.  On a 400mm+ lens that's well in 'violation' of the rule.

In those cases even on a tripod I appreciate Mode 2 IS to iron-out vertical wobbles and let me try to concentrate on holding the focus point on one feature.

I can't imagine buying any lens without IS!

I just attach my 35L hood on the ol' 135L and make Canon freaks think I have a prototype.

A lot of folks like the 100L Macro for portraits. I'm not one of them.

Now that I've gone FF the 100mm (noël) macro and the upper end of the 24mm-105mm are my two lenses in the right range for individual portraits. I recently needed to submit a current photo of myself, so I set up the tripod and used the macro and shot with a wireless remote. I failed to notice that I had left the camera in Av mode, so the shots were all at f/7.1. I could have just as well used the zoom.

The picture turned out fairly decent, given the subject matter, and a nice neutral wall was my background, so I wasn't looking for buckets of blur, and I was in sharp focus all over. The result showed more blemishes than I can normally see in the mirror. Perhaps if I get another lens for portraits, I'll try for a used 85mm from some past decade that didn't get great reviews.

Not once have I thought 'If only this 135L had IS' Not once. Maybe it's because I have shot longer without the feature than with. YMMV
