Claude - If you want to photograph nesting Albatrosses, reach is obviously not the issue. However, it is important that the lens has good IQ wide open. I very often use my MF Zeiss 100/2 at f/2, IQ is excellent and DOF is not an issue, unless you get too close. As an example I attach a "wildlife" shot taken at f/2.0 in my backyard; this should also work with nesting Albatrosses and 135 mm.
