135mm f2L EF USM

The fastest 135mm telephoto lens in its class. Ideal for indoor sports and portraits with background blur. Two UD-glass elements correct secondary spectrum for outstanding sharpness and color. Compatible with Extender EF 1.4x II and 2x II.

It is very sharp, it is very fast, it is very well-built and it is one of the least expensive L lenses Canon makes. It is the highly regarded Canon EF 135mm f/2.0 L USM Lens. If 135mm is the focal length you need, you will not be disappointed by the Canon EF 135mm f/2.0 L USM Lens.

An f/2.0 aperture is extremely wide (fast) for this focal length. This the second longest focal length Canon EF lens currently manufactured with an aperture wider than f/2.8. For this reason , this lens is frequently recommended for indoor action sports photography.

What comes with the Canon EF 135mm f/2.0 L USM Lens’ wide aperture is the ability to remove a distracting background from your picture. Isolate your subject – shoot in the lower aperture range for an excellent separation of the background. An 8-blade aperture helps keep OOF (Out of Focus) highlights round and smooth. As always with a wide-aperture lens, a bright viewfinder greets your eye. And generally, a wide-aperture lens enables the higher sensitivity AF points.

The Canon EF 135mm f/2.0 L USM Lens is a very highly regarded lens. If a 135mm fixed focal length lens is what you need, the Canon EF 135mm f/2.0 L USM Lens is sure to please.
