I am debating on what Telephoto setup I want to go with after I buy the 24L.
I Shoot both Photo and Video. I shoot mostly weddings and creative portraits(editorial, creative, evironmental, etc).

1. My current setup: Sigma 85mm 1.4 + 135l + 55-250
2. Sigma 85 + Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 OS (Sell 135L and 55-250)
3. 135L + Sigma 70-200mm (Sell Sigma 85mm and 55-250mm )
4. Keep both the Sigma 85mm + 135L and buy the Canon 70-200mm F4 IS

My current setup
5DII + 7D
Canon 24-105L
Canon 135L
Canon 55-250mm IS II
Bell & Howell 14mm 2.8
Sigma 50mm 1.4
Sigma 85mm 1.4

Any advice?

The 70-200 is pretty amazing on the 5D, get it instead of the 55-250.

Option 4, I'd rather have the 70-200 f/4 than the 55-250.

For what you've said that you primarily do - sell the 55-250 and 135L then buy a 70-200L

I would love to do that, but I would have to sell one of my longer primes to fund the zoom.
