I would consider an 85mm for portraits and keep the 35mm.

I just love speculating that the 7D 2 will be APS-H to see the APS-C crowd reactions
it's like a wind up toy that you wind up and let go and they bounce around all over the place make lots of noise then calm down eventually... until you wind them up again!
Keep it ... it will serve as a back up lens ... also, as you said that by selling it "you won't make much on it anyway" ... besides if/when you want to do some video in low light (at that focal length) it will come in really handy. Over a period of 6 years I had three Canon 50 f/1.8 lenses, the only reason I don't have any of them now is coz I gave them away as a "free gift bundle" to "enhance" the sale of my Canon 400D, 500D & 7D. So keep it, if for nothing else one day it will come in handy when you want to sell some of your other gear.+1
I exchanged my 135 for a 100 2.0 and 200 2.8 - more useful for indoor volleyball. The 135 2.0 was sort of an "inbetween" focal length for my needs. I wonder if that'll change by going to FF. If so then it'll be clear that I'm a dick.Yes, the 200 2.8 will be like your 135 on a crop
I thought about buying the Sony RX100, but ended up buying the Canon s100 when it was on sale for $229 on Amazon. I plan to take it on a trip in which I'll already be taking 2 DSLR bodies and an assortment of lenses. If it were to be my only camera, I'd pay the $648. But as a point and shoot, and for my uses, I decided to put the $400+ difference toward other uses. That said, if the price spread had been say $100, there is no question that I would have bought the Sony.+1
Question: If the High Yen = High Canon Prices argument was as valid as was asserted so many times, will we now expect to see this effect working in reverse? Or will prices stay the same, and the True Believers simply latch onto some other factor to explain it?
If you pick up a FF camera, I agree with J.R. suggestion to upgrade your lenses in the wide to short tele range. I suggest selling your 28-135mm and picking up a 24-105L. The 24-105L is an excellent general purpose lens on a full frame camera and very reasonably priced.+1
