For portrait photographers - a fast telephoto prime lens
Create stunning well-composed portraits while keeping your distance from your model, with this Canon 135mm f2 L lens. This telephoto prime lens allows you to reach out and frame your subjects successfully, without having to physically get to close them, which is excellent for portrait photographers, who are attempting to capture their subjects unguarded, and for sports photographers.
Large f2 aperture - for sports, low light and blurry backgrounds
The large maximum aperture rating of f2 featured in this lens is excellent for creating images with shallow depths of field; in other words - creating very blurry backgrounds. Combining the long focal length and large aperture, you can easily render your backgrounds into a
beautiful blur of nothing, leaving your subjects in the foreground to stand out and be noticed. When shooting wide-open you are also afforded the ability to shoot Atwater shutter speeds, capturing fast moving subjects in their tracks, and reducing the risk of camera shake when shooting with available light.
Sample Image taken with the Canon 135mm f2 L

- USM focus motor - autofocus that is fast and quiet, able to keep up with moving subjects while maintaining discretion. Great for both stills and videos
