From Wikipedia

The Canon EF 135mm f/2.8 with Softfocus is a soft focus prime lens introduced by Canon Inc. in 1987 designed for portrait photography.
This is the only EF lens that has soft focus capabilities, allowing the user to control the lens's correction of spherical aberration. This feature is controlled by rotating the soft focus selector which has three choices; 0, 1, and 2. On the 0 setting, it functions as a standard 135mm prime lens. Settings 1 and 2 adjust the amount of softness in the focus. This is done by rotating elements that are inside of the lens to create deliberate spherical aberration.
Due to its old design, the 135mm SF does not feature USM technology; rather, it uses arc-form drive technology. Despite this, focusing is quite fast and reasonably quiet. Since focusing is achieved with the rear element, the front element does not rotate or extend. The lens supports all 52mm filters.
The lens can be used with any camera that accepts EF lenses, but cannot be used with Canon's teleconverters.
