Freestyle Soccer

Freestyle soccer -- Canon 5D & EF 135mmf 2.8 Soft Focus.

Went out on lunch time today and saw this guy doing freestyle soccer.  Pretty impressive stuff.  Incidentally, the 135mm f2.8 Soft Focus lens is the least used lens I have.  Used only a few times, because I also have the 135mm f2L which I prefer, but the soft focus feature is pretty unique and hard to duplicate with software.  Not a very well made lens, and uses Arc Form Motor for focus drive instead of USM, but very sharp and reasonably priced in the used market.  Often overlooked by people because of the soft focus feature.  This feature can actually be disabled and the lens can be used like a normal 135mm f2.8 lens.
