The part about loving it because good focus is rare and hard to achieve is a masterpiece in spin doctoring.GUILTY as charged
Yeah, sure, but when it hits, it's so worth it.
In fact, I've even been considering selling my 70-200 2.8L II and picking up a 135L (and change), although I haven't been able to bring myself to do it yet. If they bring out a 135L IS, that might well convince me ... although I'm still tempted by the 135L as is. (And no, I don't want to just add a 135L to my kit. I really don't need any more lenses!)
+1, that's almost insane - the 70-200 2.8L II is a bag full of f/2.8 primes all rolled into one. It is the ultimate zoom. So unless you're bothered by its size and weight, I recommend getting the 135L beside the 70-200L (I know how GAS works). Whatever you do don't first sell the 70-200 and then get the 135L. Keep them both for a while (a year or so) to see how it works out.
I shoot mostly landscapes including sunsets and sunrises. I do some 800-1600 ISO work but not a ton. My biggest thing is that you can buy a 6d from canon refurbished for about $1,400. The only reason that is a consideration is due to having a newer sensor more so than features. I could care less for GPS or wifi.

Great picture Menace! I like how the bird flying on the right appears to be pushing the other one out of the way.
