I loved this Japanese Buddy Rich look-alike -- he was the best part of the show!

Tastino I really like your photos, and the idea with black header and footer just works so very well. Your pictures look very crispy according to the image quality. This makes me wanna buy this lens even more!

Agreed! Tastino, your shots are very nice to look at.  The black bars and desaturation really give them a cinematic feel.

Let me ask the group...I own a 70-200 f/2.8 IS Mk II. Would I see enough of a difference with the 135 @f/2 to make it worth buying a nice used one?

I have had both and kept the 135mm L.  Not because of IQ so much as weight and that slightly larger aperture does help, since I find myself needing all the light I can get.

The 70-200 is absolutely supurb while the 135 is more of a speciality lens.  I really would not recommend that you switch, and I doubt that you would gain anything unless you shoot in very dark areas with moving subjects, for stills, the IS will get you there and then some.

My 135mmL is not going away anytime soon!

I have and use both.  For low light action shooting, the 135mm f/2L is very useful.  It's also great for tight portraits where you have a busy background that you want to blur out.  For general use, the 70-200mm f2.8L IS II is great.  The IQ with the prime is no better than that with the zoom (haven't we come a long way?), so unless you have a specific need for an f/2 lens, I'd say stick with the zoom. 

Personally, I have 7-8x more shots from the 70-200mm II - it's a much more versatile lens.  Of the shots with the 135L, 90% of them are shot wider than f/2.8 (mostly f/2-f/2.2).
