I have done it three times with 135L. It is just another nice lens. Somehow it get almost cult status here. Maybe coz it is one the cheapest L with that kind of nice performance.

I'm went 135L > 70-200 II >>135L. I think the 135L is irreplaceable for indoor sports. I do like it's rendering also. But it is a more specialized lens, though less so on FF.

Sounds like me...with a few others mixed in between.

135 > 70-200 II > 135 > both.....

Just "married" a Stella a year ago.
We're still at the "honeymoon" phase.
As long as she's keeping up with herself (eg. doesn't get soft),a divorce is out of question.

Was an easy decision for me to let it go. No real room in the bag for 135L with 85L and 70-200 for me.

Im now thinking of purchasing a 5d3 and a 135L, i fancy a nice fast short tele lens. And yo can put a 1.4ex on it, and yes i know iv got a 70-200 but some times you don't want the BIG lens bulk.

I let mine go. Regretted it immediately. It's back now and will never leave again.

I can seem to let mine go even though I have a 70-200 f/2.8 ii. The 70-200 does is wonderful but it doesn't replace my 135L.

I sold my Stella so I could devote myself to Bessie. Unfortunately Bessie's size eventually wore on me and I'm back with Stella.

I don't get as many keepers with Stella, but the ones I do are, well, Stella!

Using the 70-200 II (and mkI) was work. I'm (mostly) retired now, so I was glad to see the 70-200 go. The 70-200 II was a good lens, but i just never fell in love with it.

On the other hand, when I re-bought the 135L I was surprised at the richness of the files. Having owned the lens previously I thought I knew what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised.
