Honestly, I don't find the 135L's focusing speed as impressive as I've read. This also went for the samples I rented -- the 85 1.8 has it beat indefinitely.

Really? I found it pretty epic. The Nikon 14-24-70 has some super fast and silent AF, fastest I've found so far, but the focus throw sucks, so thats a large tradeoff.

The 85/1.8's focus speed is pretty hard to top from what I've read. Have you tried the 135 with the focus delimiter switched to 1.6m - ∞? It speeds it up noticeably.

I just realized I prefer manual focus lenses. Its just a better experience overall.

Yeah, it helps a little, and it's not really slow, but I'm fairly certain my 70-200 tops it. Gonna have to try again back-to-back.

85 f/1.8 is better on a crop. I won't be buying a 100 unless it's the L macro.

A very decent lens judging from reviews. Kind of pricey though, especially compared to the 85/1.8.

Hmmmm. Seems a little short. I'm trying to get something to sooth my needs of 70-200 range, but be really fast.. Also cheaper.

I've been looking at the 100 f/2, 135 f/2.8 and the 85 f/1.8. Maybe there's something better third party?
