Yes and no. It's much better build quality, the 1.8 is quite plasticky and not as quick to focus, but makes a great beginners lens. Unless you're using it all the time, stick with the 1.8.

Ta, and yep I get exactly that. I'd like it to do just that bit more.

Sounds like the 1.4 could be the answer... :scratchchin:

Having already got the Canon 50 f1.8, is it worth spending the extra money to get 1.4?

I really like my 1.4, it's perfect for what I want, sharpness is nice, build quality is miles better etc. But if the 1.8 is good, I'd say stick with it because the 1.4 is only marginally better overall in my opinion.

why not try a sigma 1.4 super sharp, better build quality and cheap

Or the 85mm f1.4. Much nicer again

135mm F2L

where do you stop?

Mate of mine has one. I just borrow it. Between us we have almost every lens you could want or need. We rotate our lenses and loan them to eachother. Really handy.

Between the 135 and 85 - which would you go for?

I'm steering to the 135

Well I use full frame, so the 135 is great for portraits. I use 80-200 normally and everything between.
Remember if you're using a crop sensor, 85mm is a 135mm. And the 135 is a 200mm. So it's getting quite long.
