I've always thought it was such a non-versatile glass but after using it for a day its amazing.

Nice bike shot. The other two are OOF.

Had this lens for about a year and loved it. If you have a specific need for it, it's a good one.

2 and 3 are OOF ya?

But I can see past that...creamy ass backgrounds, looks sessy.

oof'ed :rofl: I'm trying to do the 100 strangers project. I wanted a photo of her and she started to have second thoughts and I just snapped a pic as fast as I could. The Desi girl was dancing in a dim room and I had no flash.:mamoru:

Interesting.

What camera?
What ISO?

The bokeh (hate that phrase) looks smooth as butter and no colour-noise, just a slight posterization which was really only there because I went looking for it after I read the above post, I didn't notice shit when I first looked at it

So my thought process was ... dim room, no flash, bump ISO to get a reciprocal increase in shutter speed... but no noise, did you bump it? If you had maxed your ISO, thats a fucking smooth image. If you had more reach in the ISO, you should have put more pressure on your equipment

if I ever found a good use for this lens, I'll be on it in a second. From everything I've read it's the best $1k you can spend on a prime.

5D classic @ 3200iso so I maxed it.:rofl:
Its definitely one of my favorite lenses but sadly so lack versatility but i doubt a 70-200 would have been capable with out a flash. In settings where flash can't be used the 5d + 135mm is an amazing combination.
