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

You might consider IS, at f2.8 the 70-200 is on heavier side
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

.
As much as I love my 135, I got my 70-200 first.

I'd do it the same way if I had to do it again.
