    It's a long shot money wise, but I need a telephoto lens and think the EF 135mm f/2L USM may be my next purchase. :lol: One day! haha

    Can anyone review this lens and/or give opinions. It would also be great to post examples if you have them.

    I shoot w/ a 20D and 5D, I'm assuming it's compatible w/ both camera bodies.

    TIA

    Off the top of my head, I don't know that any of our regular posters own that lens.

    From what I've heard, it's a great lens and lives up to the Canon L designation. The only problem is that it's expensive.

    Most photographers that I know, who would use (could afford) such a lens...go for the
    70-200mm F2.8 IS (VR) lens instead.

    Thanks so much Mike! I have read good things about it, actually I think some from you! :D Maybe someone will happen to show up and give us some examples, or so I'm hoping.

    You might try one of the bigger (usually less friendly) forums or even searching flickr for shots by that lens. I'm sure the image quality is top notch.
