Canon EF 135mm f/2.8 Softfocus lens: a telephoto lens that blurs realityWednesday December 26 2012 Lens Review
Canon’s EF 135mm f/2.8 Softfocus lens blurs images and reality – on purpose. With just a flick of the wrist and lens, the 135mm f/2.8 Softfocus allows photographers to have a “softfocus” in their images. The effect produces a blur and halo throughout the photograph. But how clear are the lens’ images when you take away the blur?
Wedding, portrait, and landscape photographers can use Canon’s EF 135mm f/2.8 Softfocus lens to create pictures with dream like qualities – the lens allows photographers to add a blur effect, creating heavenly halos around subjects. Relatively affordable and lightweight, the digital version of the 25-year-old EF 135mm f/2.8 Softfocus lens – also capable of snapping razor-sharp images – could be a creative asset in a photographer’s lens kit.
