These are test shots of the new STF 135 lens against the old 135/2.8. Minor differences in framing are due to the fact that the 135/2.8 is an internal-focus design. An in-focus shot is given first to show the scene as it appears, then a pair of out-of-focus shots from the two lenses (old and new, respectively). All pictures were shot at f4.5 (using the manual diaphram control on the STF 135).
