The tulip displays around the city are pretty nice right now. All shots taken with my F135mm/f2.8

nope, i rarely use mine. hand held is pretty easy with the 135 'cause it's tiny/light. it was very windy and overcast so i shot in aperture priority mode with the body at iso100 and lens at f2.8.

perfect lens for this sort of work ... they have rendered the colours beautifully and the bokeh is awesome.

I have the Super Tak version of the 135mm ... and it's such a nice lens.
