I am torn about lenses at the moment. While I loved the 135GM...when working with more than a single person the working distance still gets in the way...I feel a bit disconnected from the people...so am torn about adding it. So many wants...from lenses to car parts...
I've owned several 135's throughout the years and they never stay in my bag for the reasons you described. 85mm is a much more engaging focal length to work with. I have been tempted for the past year or so by the Sigma 105 since it seems to sit the difference between 85 and 135, but this is more out of G.A.S, curiosity, and boredom. 85GM has done everything I need it to since I picked it up 3 years ago.
The flip side is that I'm starting to feel OK with keeping lenses even if I don't use them much if they fill a special purpose need. i.e. I always end up selling UWA zooms because my need for them come and goes. Now that Disney is done, the Sigma 14-24 I acquired last month will probably sit in my bag for months between uses. But when I need an UWA, I really need it and its good to have in my bag ready to go.
