As usual, the "best" answer is "it depends" ;)

Anyway, on a more serious note, it depends on what percentage of shots are going to be needing you to add on the 2x. I have a question for you. Why the non IS 70-200?

Hi,

I'm only 16 and I can't quite justify spending $2400 on the lens. I will eventually buy the IS II, but right now, I just can't.

Which lens should I get? It will be used for aviation, portrait, a bit of sports and general purpose. Body is a 5D mark II.

Although I have the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II I think I am addicted to 135L.

It is small, light and super sharp.

Hi,

I have a feeling that if I purchased the 135 I would use strictly for portraits and nothing else. With the 70-200 I feel that would would use it all the time.

Thanks,

Then you just answered to your own dilemma!

Pretty much!

I was exactly in the same dilemma just 2 days ago. I ended up buying a used 70-200 f2.8L off ebay last night. I was going back and forth between this lens and the 135. I use 60D and 5D3, often missed the reach (especially in 5D), as I only had Canon's 24-70, 50, and Tokina's 11-16, and figured 135-200 ish reach would compliment my style. So I am planning to use this for a while and if I don't like it I know I will sell it off somewhere down the line  and add cash to get the IS or 135.

Hi,

I think I'm going to but the 70-200 now and then buy the 135 to use specifically just for portraits.

Thanks,

Hello,

Since the 70-200 f/2.8 L is being discontinued soon, should I buy one or stick to buying the 135 f/2?

Thanks,

littlepilotdude

That depends on your shooting style and pref. If portraits and possibly indoor sports are your thing you might like the 135 f/2 better. It's what I would go for. A fast L prime over zoom any day. The 135 is known for its awesome IQ and sharpness, even wide open. Add in delicious bokeh and a nice size and you have very nice lens indeed!

Hi,

I shoot portraits, but the versatility of the 70-200 seems better for me than the 135. Although I like the extra bit of light with the 135 better. I already have the 24-105 which is an F/4 and it is pretty versatile but I would like the extra reach.

Thanks

based on this i would be leaning more towards the 135
go into a store and check a 70-200 and see the difference between 135 and 200 its not alot

if you were looking at the 70-200 IS mkII then for me the IS is the winner with this lens and its flat out awesome
but for the old 70-200 I think the 135 is a better lens



Hi,

I would snag the 70-200 IS, but I don't have the cash for it.

Thanks,
