It's a fake. Even the reflection is off. The red "L" ring is usually blurred.

I have found the following picture and I don't know what to think about it.
There were some texts below the picture but I don't know how to treat it.

"Dies ist eine Fälschung. Ich machte einen Witz von Ihnen. C'est une blague. Si tratta di uno scherzo. Esto es una broma. Это шутка. Đây là một trò đùa. Hii ni mzaha. 這是一個笑話。Ĉi tiu estas ŝerco."

Could it be new EF 135??????? Help, I must know when this is available!

It is 100% fake.

The photoshopper never focused on the current font printed on the front ring of the lens. It is Frutiger series, not Arial-like.

Font-Nerds.  There's a geek-type for everyone.

I love the internet.   ;D

This was my morning chuckle. Thanks.

Wouldn't the 135mm f/1.4 be a white lens?  It would have to be big enough, but would be a cool lens to have if you were a fashion photographer.   ;D

It is kind of weird that it goes from 85mm f/1.2 to 135mm f/2 and increases 3 steps.

It's all white but in protective coat as this is so rare, that might be stolen immadietaly. I've seen a valuable reward for delivering it in mint condition. It contains 16 fluorite elements so except white paint it's cover is made of Peltier cooler and it comes with helium filled baloons for easier handling (it's not easy to handhold 15kg lens), fortunately 7 steps operating IS helps a lot....

Just add IS to one of:

135 2.0 or
200 2.8

So I can have a lightweight telephoto with IS. And make sure it works with the teleconverters

It says, in many languages (but not in English, not sure why), that it's a joke.

Why would a portrait lens need a focus limiting switch?  Isn't that a Macro thing?

Not really. 200/2.8 II has it (1.5 - 3.5 m and 3.5 m - infinity IIRC).

Let's say you're using one of the great whites to cover a football, sorry, soccer match. You are positioned on one side of the pitch, the action is on the other side of it. Imagine your lens turning from MFD all the way to infinity, and back again. Many moments would be lost there. :)
Trusty 20D, a lighter 200, a nifty fifty, and an old Sigma that won't work stopped down.

Im from xitek forum.

it's total fake.

the forger made two obvious mistakes first, found immediately by others.

1. CFD at 0.3m
2. a focus distance window from a wide angle or macro lens.

only then, it was revamped as you see now.

It´s a fake, but a good photoshop job with a mistake.

Its hard to imagine the 135L improving and i know thats been said about a lot of lenses but this lens pretty much never fails. I suppose the glass would somehow be improved with the latest coatings and somehow be made to handle higher resolution cameras. I think their lens lineup is gearing up to support a high mega pixel camera. Shoot i read 5yrs ago about them developing a 50 mp sensor but they were smart enough to not release it since the computer and memory age really hadn't made it very affordable to handle tons of files at that resolution in an efficient manner.
