New FD 135mm f/2.0, New FD 135mm f/ii.eight & New FD 135mm f/3.5



Every bit said earlier on the 100mm section, those days of the manual focus era, focal lengths of 85mm to 135mm were generally regarded as the second most popular lens for a relative newcomer to 35mm SLR photography.

The visual result of a telephoto lens can be easily checked when compared with a standard lens the moment you look through the viewfinder of your camera and see the effects of the 85mm, 100mm and, finally, the 135mm telephoto lenses.

As you lot moved upwardly the focal length scales, you volition see an increase in compression of perspective, a narrowing of the bending of view, increased magnification of the image and a decrease in depth-of-field. You won’t see these changes to any swell extent with the 85mm and l00mm lenses. But they become more apparent with the 135mm. The basis for classification of lenses, in addition to angle of view, is the extent to which they magnify the image y’all see in the finder. Well, for many still prefer and believe in edge of superiority of the built and optical quality of prime number lenses over zoom lenses, these lenses, although they may not present the conveniences of modern zoom lenses, still presents a very attractive culling.

The 135mm is considered the middle range of the medium telephoto lenses, with 300mm being the summit. It can be used to capture sports or as an outstanding portrait lens on the other. The reward of the maximum and constant apertures of these New FD-type of 135mm lenses are big enough to make the lenses useful in low lite situations especially when used in combination with faster films.

There are three options in the Canon FD line for the 135mm focal length – other than the f2.0 version, the other two lenses are designed to be extremely compact and lighweight. The 135mm lens is a telephoto with a wide range of applications, notwithstanding it is very bonny for a get-go photographer and useful for a professional akin. The appearance of compressed perspective starts to be much more obvious with the 135mm lens than lenses of shorter focal lengths. It is peradventure the start of the true telephoto lenses, since all the attributes and characteristics of telephoto lenses are credible enough to be significant for picture-taking.

How exercise you determine which lenses – particularly telephoto – volition do the virtually for your picture-taking needs? What you shoot is the fundamental in determining which telephoto lenses you lot will need. With a zoom lens, well-nigh of this could be resolved by simply zooming in and out and observe the best focal length to fill up the movie frame. I am not against zoom lenses, to sum it upwardly in a short annotation, I still don’t call up zoom lenses will benefit somebody new to photography – primarily considering he/she might not able to get a experience about the relations of lenses that are generated by focal lengths or picture angles. Visualizations of how you lot envision a photograph should look like does not happen overnight. It needs the experiences and know-how that are accumulated over the years, and the feel of getting the diverse characteristics of different focal lengths by really using them, volition help a lot in improving one’s understanding of how lenses works and their limitations. On a personal note, unless you are willing to cough out more from your pocket, it is still hard to convince that zoom lenses are now rivaling prime types in optical quality, peculiarly axiomatic in situations where shooting straight against strong light sources volition produce flares.

Generally, as a guideline – just take a


look at your pictures that satisfy y’all least
. For sports photography y’all may find that you need medium telephoto lenses – 135mm, 200mm or 300mm or if you have a distance to work with such every bit high speed car racing, longer focal length lenses will be more desirable. If your main interest is in traveling, the 50mm, 85mm and the 100mm focal lengths the longest lenses y’all may need (or a high power zoom ratio zoom lens is all you required). Since photography is a free form of expression, medium and brusk telephoto lenses are every bit good for breathtaking and landscape shots equally you tin can isolate a particular section in a scene and not necessary just limiting the lens for sport or portraiture photography – well, that was the supposition dorsum in those days when the availability, prices and qualities of zoom lenses did non encounter your demands or you may have already built upwards a sizable collection of prime lenses.

Tips

: Nosotros often find ourselves falling into conventional means of doing things. Almost automatically, for example, we tend to shoot horizontal compositions with telephoto lenses. Instead,


try using the vertical format

; in fact, you can most make full the frame with a person’due south caput at about 1.3 meters, or v feet.

Another approach is to call up in terms of angle of view. Typically, y’all might select 85mm, 135rnm and 300mm lenses for your photography. The 85mm is almost ten° greater in angle of view than the 135mm lens, while the 135mm lens has 10° more than angle of view than the 300mm. Every bit we noted earlier, the bailiwick of the 135mm is almost 25 per centum of the expanse covered by the 85mm lens and about four times that of the 300mm. The 50mm covers about iv times the field of study surface area of the l00mm lens. The 100mm covers almost four times that of the 200mm.

A field of view comparison chart of telephoto lenses and the standard lens


Magnifications, compressed perspectives and greater visual impacts are merely some of the key advantages a telephoto lens present. At present accept a look at the analogy above which show the areas covered by the 85mm, 100mm, 135mm, 200mm and 300mm lenses compared to that of the 50mm.




With a clearer view in mind of which focal length you lot may need, the next one is an even more hard question. WHAT lens speed

should I go for?



Starting time, the priority is again what type of photography will you lot be involved with? If you shoot a lot of phase shots or concerts, indoors and depression low-cal portraits to way shows that uses a lot of flash, f2.8 is the compromise between prices and practicalities. But if most of your portraits are accomplished outdoors or shot in bright conditions, the f/three.5 lens will exercise just squeamish. Notwithstanding, for serious piece of work with available light most of the time, so the 135mm f2.0 is a more logical call. Obviously, it breaks down to price versus practicality again (Most lenses of this style will yield more than than satisfactory results, so the upshot of performance is not in the priority list). The f3.five version is the cheapest and the most meaty amid the three just has less depth of field control. The f2.0 version is pricey just is indispensable if most of the fourth dimension you accept to fight with shutter speed. The eye-of-the-road f2.8 version looks the most logical compromise among the three in terms of price, functioning, versatility and mobility.

As versatile for news and reportage, sports and even nature photography where its slightly longer focal length tin be used to isolate a department within a view.

New FD






135mm f/3.5



Lens

Popular and modestly priced among the few telephoto lenses in the FD series. It was the first unit among the three versions that was being discontinued at quite an early on stage, making mode for the f2.8 version to be even more pop.

Using the minimum necessary elements – four, in four groups – makes this lens i of the smallest and lightest of the telephoto group. A practical design and utmost portability plus a very reasonable toll make this lens the perfect substitution and good companion if your budget is tight.

USM


Technical highlight:





Another high speed lens for medium telephoto shots. The big f/2 aperture permits low-lite situations such every bit indoor sports, stage shows or news. It too gives great groundwork blur for portraits. Two UD elements right balance chromatic aberrations, resulting in sharp images, which are too responsible for this lens to earn its Fifty-designation. The lens is also the lightest in its class at 750 g. Retrofocusing with a ring USM brand autofocusing silent and speedy. Attaching Extender EF 1.4x or EF 2x increases the focal length to 189mm f/2.viii or 270mm f/4 respectively while autofocusing remains operational. Full-time manual focusing is provided to fine-tune the focusing in AF fashion. The lens does non rotate during focusing, whatsoever fastened special event filter volition not be affected.
