A few shots of family/friends from the 50th birthday party of a family member. All with the 135mm f/2 DC.

f/2.2, 1/400, ISO 200 (I know, I blew the highlight on his bald spot, heh)

This lens continues to amaze me. Anything I've found in my photos with it that has been unsatisfactory has been due to a mistake of mine. It performs exactly as I need it to.

nute - Jump on the deal immediately if you can afford the lens. It'll be a great prime to fill in the range between your 85 1.8/90 2.8 and your 180 2.8. As you can see, it has the ability to just melt away the background, and it's very sharp even at f/2. I bought mine (a non-D version) from KEH in EX condition for $616, which is the best price I've been able to find anywhere. One minor complaint I have is some CA present when you blow highlights, but it's pretty hard to avoid with an f/2 aperture, and it's easy enough to fix in CS2.
