I have been thinking of selling off my bulky 2.8 zooms and I got an offer to trade my 24-70 for a 135L in similar condition + 250 cash.

I am thinking of also selling my 70-200 2.8 so anyone have any thoughts on such a deal? seem fair?

I sold my 2009 24-70 last summer for $1200 and you can buy a new 135L with that.

I'm pretty sure he's saying that the person trading the 135L would be adding 250 in cash.

Yes $250 plus his 135L for my 24-70. My thinking is I can see how I like the 135 and if I prefer my 70-200 I keep that, if not I am sure I can sell the 135 for around 850 to 900 later on.

It sounds about right to me.

135 is a sweet lens. It looks like it would fit nicely into you primes.

Well since I have the 100L I am not really sure I need the 135. I would imagine the 135 would be better for concerts, sports, fast action.

I've got them both, along with the 85L, I may sell my 100L but I like the idea of having an option with IS.

I love the 100L, I don't see me ever parting with any of my current 3 primes. I am sure the 135 is excellent as well but I never tried it out. As much as I love the results from the 70-200 2.8 I just don't enjoy using it. Outdoors I much prefer the 70-300L and indoors 50 is usually what I use most.

Basically I would be selling both 2.8 zoom and adding the 135. So 17-40, 70-300L, 24, 50, 100, 135. Seems like a good lineup.

That says a lot about the 70-300.

Well I like how compact the 70-300 is. IMO at similar apertures they are close enough and the range and size make it appealing. I really don't plan to make a decision right away on the long end but I find I am using the 24-70 less and less.

I dunno...for me, and my style? I don't like going without a walkaround zoom...But that's me....everyone shoots differently though and focuses on different things, so, it really depends...

So back to the point does it seem fair?
