Canon EF 135mm f2.0 L USM

Ideal for portraiture, the EF 135mm f/2L USM is a medium telephoto prime and a member of Canon's Professional telephoto L-series of lenses.

The long focal length coupled with the f/2 maximum aperture afford a great deal of control over depth of field for isolating subject matter and using selective focus, and the bright aperture also benefits shooting handheld in low-light conditions.

Sharp, fast and lightweight

The lens' large maximum aperture lets photographers shoot with relatively fast shutter speeds, even in low light. This makes the EF 135mm f/2.0L USM an ideal optic for those shooting indoor sports. Despite its high specification, the lens is relatively lightweight and compact, weighing just 750g.

  • Complementing the imaging attributes, a ring-type USM is employed to deliver quick and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control.
  • Medium-length telephoto prime is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 216mm equivalent focal length.
  • Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords significant control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
  • Two ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
  • Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
  • A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with a rear focusing system, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
  • Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
  • As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is dust and moisture-resistant for working in inclement environmental conditions.
  • Compatible with optional EF 1.4X and EF 2X teleconverters.

L-series quality

The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.

Large f/2 aperture

A large maximum aperture of f/2 provides outstanding speed for shooting in low-light conditions without the need for flash. The large aperture also provides fine control over depth of field.

Ultrasonic focusing

A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.

Super Spectra coating

Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.

Integration with E-TTL II flash metering

The lens passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering.

Accessories

The lens comes supplied with a lens hood and a soft case.
