I think I am quoting another member here by saying, it is like parking a Ferrari on the body of your camera. I love the feel of it, the look of it, and it shoots with ooooooh so buttery bokeh, love everything about it.

On Saturday, I walked into the camera store with the intention of getting the 35L and the 100L.  I left with the 85L.  The 35L is next, and hopefully very soon, but I just fell in love with this thing and couldn't bear to be without it.  An unnecessary luxury, certainly, but wow is this thing awesome.  Can wait to grow as a photographer with this sexy piece of glass.

LOL, yeah, parking a Ferrari, except that this Ferrari moves oh-so-slow...

I just got myself a 35L, I think next target will either be this 'Ferrari' or the 135L

BTW congrats on the good buy mate!

if you are concerned about slow ferraris have a good look at the sigma 85 its my favourite lens
now if they would just make a 50mm exactly the same...

Yeah, been aiming on it for some time after I got the 35, man are those fast primes addictive!

However for not much more money then Sig 85 I could get the legendary 135L. I have to think some more to make a decision.
I'm going to buy a 35L next month, I can't wait

very different focal lengths there i've nearly pulled the trigger on the 135 a few times especially when a friend sold his. depends what you are shooting but 135 needs a lot of real estate to wield I find the 85 very tight sometimes which is why i'm craving a better 50mm more like the siggy 85, i'm hoping the 35 is going to fix this for me 85 on 1 body 35 on the other and i should be pretty set

although second hand the 135s go for around $800 to $900 so a new siggy is a bit more at between $900 and $1000 depending where you go

 I also need to add the disclaimer that i'm the resident site sigma 85 fan boi too
