    I’m getting the 135 for Christmas so I have been researching it. So happy I found your blog and look forward to learning more!ReplyCancel

    Hello Emily! Well, now the 135 f2.0 is on my wish list…When I was using a crop sensor I loved my 17-55 f2.8, but now that I upgraded to the Canon 5D Mark III and mostly shoot real estate I pretty much only use my 16-28 f2.8 & my 50mm f1.4…Otherwise I rent lenses for different shoots. I am definitely checking out the 135mm! Thank you!ReplyCancel

    Hi Emily! My favourite lens is probably Sigma 85 mm 1.4 ART, but… I would like to have also my own 135mm and also 35mm…. you know… I would like to have every lens… now, immidiately 😀 :D.ReplyCancel

    Hello Emily, I just thought I would drop in and say hello and I read your information everytime it hits my mailbox.  This lens you speak of meaning the 135mm seems like a great lens.  I use my Canon kit long lens 55-220mm quite often and so far it seems to be my favourite…until now of course.  Having to stand further away from my subject makes up for the great photo.  I also use the uv lens protector on the outside and that seems to produce some really good results.  I also subscribe to the ” F Stoppers” site on You Tube and they have some interesting things to view there as well on a mixed bag of issues, photoshop and products.   They speak of a company that makes great lens’s and the name escapes me… I think it may start with the letter “R”…lol is that not silly or what… I will have to back and check.  This is a great time of year up here in Maple Ridge BC, Canada for some awesome fall scenes and natural backdrops.  I really like to use the fall colours as a blurred background for my subjects standing in the foreground.  Cheers Emily,  have a great week and Happy Clicking..Cheers… or Cheeze..lol  bye for now.ReplyCancel

    Hi Emily! I bought the 135mm lens last year because you suggested it and I use this lens often, if I have 4 or less subjects. I also use a 50mm lens which I have had for many years, which I use with larger groups and when it gets closer to sunset. I am in the market for a Luxe lens because I am having issues with having enough light with the 50mm. I may get an 85mm………….what do you think?ReplyCancel

      Hey Kara! You know I love the 85mm too (1.8) I think it’s a great middle between the 50 and 135. I just tend to use my 135 over the 85, but it’s totally a personal preference 😉ReplyCancel

    I use a 85mm f1.4 portrait lens on my Sony alpha 7 mark IIIr body. It really is my favourite 🙂 It’s a fast lens producing really nice bokeh.ReplyCancel
