Before buying a lens I would like to see what kind of pictures it can take. Which websites let me see all the photos previously taken online by a particular lens (or a lens/camera combo)?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions seeking specific product or service recommendations, where the answer is likely to be either entirely personal or short-lived as a result of changing markets, are off topic here. Please rephrase your question to describe the problem you're trying to solve or what you do not understand that prevents you from determining the answer yourself." – mattdm, Olin Lathrop, Caleb, Tetsujin, Olivier
I have used PixelPeeper for that. It is a site which was made specially for this purpose.
For example, if you want to see images taken with the Canon EF 135mm f/2 L lens, just go to Flickr, type in "EF 135mm f/2 L" in the search box in the upper right hand corner of their main page, select "Photos" from the dropdown menu, and you'll get a plethora of images with that lens in the EXIF info.
Most other image sharing sites can be similarly searched by lens.
