definitive 85...the 135L and a few steps backwards.

I disagree as I think for most people's general usage the 85mm focal length is far more versatile and easier to use.

Was this a query about what is best for most people? I find most people disagree with my photography choices in general (love the 40 FL, hate 50mm, rather use primes over a 70-200 etc etc) and thats the sort of thing that keeps us all from homogenizing to death. YMMV and I hope it does.

Good points.  Decided to keep the 135 as my 85 and add the 100-400 II and 50 1.2. 
Granted, the 50 is the 135 with even more steps back, but it seems a nice complement to the UWA just in case there's a wall.
Thanks again.  Much appreciated.
