The EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens from Canon is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of advanced amateurs and professionals. With its f/2 maximum aperture, it is effective in low light situations and able to obtain shallow depth of field with superior background blur. A ten element optical formula with two UD-glass elements serves to correct residual aberrations, resulting in superb sharpness and high image quality.

An ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) enables fast, smooth and silent autofocus and fulltime manual override allows for precise manual focus even in autofocus mode. The minimum focus distance for the 135mm f/2 is 3.0'. A switch on the lens barrel enables you to adjust the focusing distance range for faster autofocus speed. It is a stellar portrait and available light lens and is fully compatible with the Canon EF1.4x II and EF2.0x II extenders.

 

Two UD Glass Elements
Two UD-glass elements minimize aberrations and result in sharp pictures from corner-to-corner.
Ultrasonic Autofocus Motor
An Ultrasonic Autofocus Motor (USM) provides fast, smooth and quiet autofocus.
Focus Range Limiter
On the 135mm f/2L lens you can choose the focusing distance range with a switch on the lens barrel. By setting a suitable focusing distance range, actual autofocus time can be shorter. The two focusing ranges are 3.0' to infinity and 5.2' to infinity
Manual Focus Override
Full-time manual focus override allows you to use manual focus mode for precision focusing at any time, even when in autofocus mode.

    This lens is amazing. I pair it with a Canon 5D Mk II and everything about this combination works just perfect for me. I shoot portraits of couples and solo portraits with this and the pictures just blow my mind each time I download them from a shoot.

    When used with the right technique and shot wide open, the lens offers just the right level of background compression and subject isolation in my opinion. The focal length almost forces you to maintain the right subject distance and as a result, almost the entire subject is in sharp focus and rest of the background is just beautifully blurred. The bokeh is just not only melty but also has a beautiful character to it. It looks very pleasant to my eye. The lens produces stunning contrast right out of the camera, beautiful colors and corner sharpness even when shooting wide open at f/2.

    The focus locking is so perfect - the lens never hunts on my body. The weight is just right too and with a wide aperture, a lot of creative possibilities are afforded on the shoot.

    If you shoot people and are looking for a nice keeper lens that will give you a lot of mileage over a long period of time, you are looking at a winner here.
    PS: Attaching a few shots from a recent lifestyle couple's photoshoot that I shot here in Arizona.

    I bought this lens because so many people said they used it for sports in a gym with a crop sensor. That gets them close to 200mm without investing in a 70-200mm. I shoot XC, and Indoor and outdoor track and field. I use my 70-200mm with 5DMarkIII for running events and a 7D with the 135mm for field events. I've only used it once, so I'm not making a clear judgement yet, but I did not find it such a snappy focusing lens. I would say 50-60% of my shots were out of focus. I made adjustments to the focusing on the camera thinking that was the problem, but that yielded a rate of about 40-50% out of focus shots. Some were back focused so maybe a micro adjustment is needed? I did not just love this lens at first use like I did my 70-200mm. I plan on more use and an update of this review, but wanted to get my thoughts out.
    It is lightweight, and sharp when shooting static subjects. Color is good, and I did not see any CA.

        Comments about Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens:

        I bought this lens for family/portrait photography. I have used to for two sessions so far and its already my favorite lens! It produces very sharp images even when opened wide and also give a gorgeous blurry background. I was worried that it'd be too heavy but I quickly got used to that. If you're considering this lens, go for it!

          Comments about Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens:

          I rented this lens a few years ago to shoot an indoor sports event (a rare demo game of an Olympic champion in badminton). The lens performed great on my 40D. It was surprisingly sharp wide open and proved to have a fast and reliable focus. But I didn't buy it back then because it felt too long on a cropped sensor.

          Now after upgrading to 6D I finally bought it and again I am surprised how sharp wide open it is, and how reliable the focus is. I actually get close to 100% rate of acceptable focus shots. I spent a lot of time playing with it and I found that I actually don't miss a heavier long zoom lens at all. Even 100% crops are sharp and the subject isolation is better than a similar framing of 70-300f5.6 at 300mm. Perhaps this is the first time I really became a fan of a prime lens.

          Areas of (small) concern are: no image stabilization (hand-held videos will be extremely shaky and you'll need to keep an eye on the shutter speed for photos). And the lens contrast drops significantly when there is a sunlight on the front element. In fact this is the first lens where I use the lens hood a lot. And then there is a plastic filter thread - a minor problem, especially if you use the same filter all the time.

          Highly recommended, especially if you have a full frame camera and enjoy working with telephoto range. Your headshot portraits will immediately stand out and will inspire you to try this lens in lots of other situations.

              Comments about Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens:

              My wife and I have been renting this lens for about a year now and we decided to finally just buy it and man we could not be happier!

              Portraits, Headshots, Wildlife, Weddings, Sports, Studio, you name it and this lens could expertly apply itself to any of those specialties. Notice, I said expertly. This lens is sharp, fast AF, wide open f/2.0 aperture, and great color rendition but you indeed have to be very intentional when using this lens. If you want to take a headshot, be sure to give yourself room to frame your shot; it's a tight lens so keep that in mind.

              During a wedding, it's phenomenal when you're shooting in lowlight but it's also handy if you're just a bit further back from the bride and groom. Another advantage is the weight; no where near as heavy as the 70-200mm lens. My wife and I mainly use full frame bodies but when we paired this lens with a new Canon 7D Mark 2, I felt so much closer to my subjects during a wedding. I used on a few outdoor trips and again, it was so impressive how well it did focusing on fast moving wildlife :)

              We've also used it in a studio setting paired up with some speed lights and a backdrop. We mainly shoot this lens wide open but we stopped down to f/4 and we were again blown away with how sharp this lens gets!

              Another great plus to this lens is the price. It really is a great investment all around, truly happy with it and have no real complaints. It's not weather-sealed but we don't see ourselves using this lens in a situation when weather sealing would matter.

              Just add it to your cart and buy it.

              I use this lens every weekend. It's fantastic and I love the quality of images that come out of it. The low aperture is fantastic for low lighting, particularly for ceremonies held in poorly lit churches. I wish it were not as heavy as it is but for all that it is surprisingly compact.

Outperform the robust 85mm 1.2L any day. If you say there is a difference i am asking you is there a difference big enough in quality as the difference in price? I didn't think so

                    I bought it primarily for portraits of pets, but I find that I am using it for almost everything. It's very versatile!

                      I use this lens mostly for portraits and its fabulous. The longer focal length allows me to get foreground blur in my shot if I want whereas my 50mm makes this harder.

                        REASON FOR PURCHASE
                        I use this purely for portraiture. I have a 50mm 1.2 and as much as I love that lens I did not want to use it for portraiture in order to go a little more telephoto and show less distortion. I considered 85mm because I have heard a lot of good things about that lens. I rented it and it does have a very good blur quality but it was certainly heavy for a lens of that focal length. I usually add creative elements during post production so "bokeh" was not on the top of my list therefore I did some more research to find out what the next prime lens in Canon's collection can offer. I found out that this is not the latest lens in the line up but I think I was satisfied with the reviews to give one a try especially since it was considerably cheaper than the 85mm.

                        AFTER PURCHASE

                        I have only used this lens for a couple of weeks but for what I do, I think this lens is a perfect complement for my 50mm. For those who do not own the 50mm which is my favorite prime lens that canon makes within my budget, 85mm would offer a lot more since it is not exactly wide but less telephoto than the 135mm. On textbook the 85 mm can give you a better bokeh but I think this lens is right up there with the 85mm. Of course it only goes up to f/2 but I don't only shoot weddings so it is never super dark for me to go over f/2 anyways. I think this is a very high quality lens and had 2 UD elements but you can get it for less because it has been on the market for almost 20 years.

                        BUY IT IF

                        You want to complement your wide prime lens
                        You want a little less distortion in your portraits
                        You cannot afford the 85 mm but want great quality portraits
                        You are uncertain about prime lenses

                        RECONSIDER IF

                        You only shoot portraits to rely on their background blur (If you have the extra money for 85 mm then it isn't a bad investment)
                        You want a slightly wide angle in order to show more background or shoot more than one person (50 mm 1.2 is a GREAT lens)
                        You would like to be closer to your subjects while shooting (I found that I have to stand about 8 ft away in order to get the right composition for my needs)

                        BOTTOM LINE

                        50mm, 85mm 135mm are all very good prime lenses. If you know how to use them to their potential you can do wonderful things. If you can only afford 1, I would get either 50 or 85 depending how wide you want to go. If you want two, I would get (And got) 50 and 135. Having all 3 would be awesome but then you don't need to read reviews just go ahead.

                        Comments about Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens:

                        I thought that I had every lens I needed, but kept mulling over the pros and cons of this lens for two years. I can't believe that I waited so long to get it. I wrote a complete review of it with pictures that you can read here just a day or two after getting it from B&H (who is the absolute best source for photography equipment and supplies!)----------A week later, I love it even more and found myself turning to it in all three of my photoshoots this past weekend. For me, it's the perfect focal length for portraits. The results are just as nice as the 70-200 f/2.8 L IS, but its much more maneuverable and a bit better in low light because of the option for 2.0. If you're contemplating this lens, get it. You won't be disappointed.

                          This is a terrific medium telephoto for just about any situation. Very fast, incredible detail, super bokeh in a relatively compact package. Like many others, I wanted to supplement my 70~200 f/2.8 without the bulk of that otherwise fine lens.

                          While very useful for portrait work, I can see this as a great travel lens when paired with a wide angle and 85mm primes.

                          Very high quality optices from f/2.0 to f/32. Cant' be beat.

                          I own few L Lens (17-40 f/4,70-200 f/4) and now 135 f/2. This is my new favorite lens among all. The quality is unbelievable. I compared this lens with 85 f/1.2 before buying and I liked this better because it gave me a nice bokeh and felt perfect while testing. I got this lens for the portrait photography. With f2 you have to be a little careful about where you position your focus point because it would blur out anything not on the focus plane but it produces sharp quality all around the focus plane. Love this lens.

                            I have been taking pictures forever, but I am new to the amateur photography scene. I took a class online this summer and my love for photography has taken over all of my free time. My primary subjects are my two toddlers and my 17 year old son. I bought this lens after reading many positive reviews, ranting about how incredible it was. My husband was sceptical and didn't really believe the hype until he saw the photos! This lens is so fun! When I post pics on FB I get so many compliments and inquiries about what classes I am taking and what equipment I am using. My pictures look amazing. I use the lens around the house to capture everyday activities in low light and at the soccer field catching action photos of my son (with the 1.4x extender). The lens was worth every penny!

                              This easy-to-use prime allows maunal focus during auto-focus mode, while producing spectacular results in DOF contrast/bokeh. Though a bit heavy, this lens is about half a pound lighter than the Zeiss 135mm, at about half the price, achieving levels of performance par excellence in grade.

                                Comments about Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens:

                                Simply stated - It may be one of the oldest 'L' series primes out there but it still shines with amazing sharpness, color and contrast and is a go to lens for portrait work as well as video. It has become a regular on the cameras on wedding days.
