I'd like a 135L f/1.8L IS USM just as much as anyone else but it's probably never going to happen soon.

I hesitate between "135L f2" and "100L f2.8 MACRO IS USM"
Difficult to make good choice

Perhaps never.

Not really...  Do you need to shoot macro?  Get the 100L.  Do you need the shallowest DoF possible in a 135mm lens, or need the extra stop of aperture for low light use?  Get the 135L. 

The 100L is a macro lens that can also take decent portraits.  The 135L is a portrait and low-light action lens that cannot take macro shots.

If you really feel like you need IS, snag the 100 Macro.  From what I have heard its a great lens, it is one I consider snagging on occasion.  Overall though, the 135 from everything I have heard is just amazing and it will be in my bag by summer.  As for waiting for an IS version, don't bother.  Recent prime changes tell ya that is such a lens ever comes out, it won't have that special feel this one has, ---it would probably be 2.8, and cost double what the current one does

Good choice its fantastic!

You can buy the additional Macro lens Canon 500D in either 72mm (same as EF135) or 77mm and you will get decent macro (not 1:1) in the EF 135. Forget about handhelding it with macro thou since you will have small apertures so I would say that you need a good tripod.

But the bokeh in the 135 is so good, Ill try to have it on all the time!

Or you can use the Kenko extension tubes and get close to true (1:1) macro. They vignette on full frame, but it can be corrected.
