canon 135 mm f/2 L test

I've just got this lens today and did some tests.
First impression:
Build quality excellent! very solid construction, like you expect from an L lens.
Weight exactly the right weight that makes a perfect balance with the camera body.
AF fast, fast, fast!!
Minimal focus distance: 0.9 m. but with 68 mm of Ex. tubes you can get really macro
capabilities, magnification of 1:1.3, very close to 1:1 from about 25 cm.
Performance very sharp even at wide open aperture with good micro contrast that gets better when stopping down. Bokeh smooth and creamy, colors natural.

All images are FF, untouched with PS and were taken on a tripod with a release cable and MLU.
