135 f/2.0 with IS would be awesome ... if they do release it, I hope Canon goes easy on its pricing.

Your hopes will be dashed!! It will double in price from the current version, for sure.

I agree with DS... "If" Canon produces a 135mm f/1.8 with IS it will have a hefty price based on their current upgrade pricing policies...  I think a 135mm f/2 IS is more realistic and even that will carry a heavy price for admittance. No doubt!  I do not own the current 135mm, but most photographers wax poetic about its if an update is made I would expect conservative Canon to make it an incremental update, nothing big and splashy....but ya never know.

If the New 135L is non-IS, fail.

And no f/1.8 too  >:(
May I ask if you have anything against a wonderful f/2.0 aperture ?  8)
Actually I forgot to put sarcasm quotes referring to RLphoto's remark. He repeatedly mentioned in other threads that he is dreaming / wishing for a 135mm f/1.8
Personally I like f/2 but would love to have IS. Currently the non-IS is around 1000 euro. The IS will probably 1,5 the current price.  :(
