The longest lens in Canon’s “Holy Trinity of Primes,” the 135L f/2 is one our favorites. Amazing bokeh (out of focus area of an image) and very sharp wide open, this lens is a fantastic portrait lens when used on a full-frame camera. It can get a little tight with a 1.6x crop-sensor camera, behaving more like a 200mm; great for weddings, but a little long for full body portraits. It has super quick auto-focus, and an incredibly sexy front glass element. Considering the 135L opens all the way up to 2.0, one full stop faster than a 2.8 lens (twice as much light!) it’s a remarkably light and compact lens, no bicep curls necessary!
