It is decision time again....keep my bokehlish-ish 135L

Or....

Sell it and use it to fund a used/refurbished 5d mkii (mostly for ts-e usage)

I do have the 70-200 mkii and have similar findings to those see on the forums when compared to the 135, but the 135's bokeh is creamer than the 70-200...I also know that when you need f/2, you need f/2...but I figure the sigma 85 on the 7d would do in a pinch...

What to do what to do....

Actually, this is one of the best questions I've heard in a long time.

FF surely has sweet advantages........ 135 is a specialty lens........ I dunno. I think if you asked, somewhere in your gut you want the FF for the TS-E shots.

BTW, how do you like the TS-E II?

Haha thanks...it is a weird question thought...camera or lens, usually its this or that camera or this or that lens...

the biggest thing is that I am under a time table...I will be in the US for only 2 weeks so need to pick and sell while I am there (much cheaper there than in japan...sigh...you'd think things would be cheaper here because they are made here :p)

Yeah...my gut tells me FF goodness, especially because the batteries are the same between that and the 7D, it’s a great match to the 5d mkii......but it’s the 135!!!

The TS-E II....in one word...its an AMAZING lens! They solved almost all the problems with the mk I and it is crazy sharp with very little CA even fulling shifted and tilted. If you ever have the opportunity to pick one up do it without hesitation! Yeah it has it's limitations in usage, and yeah if you don't have LV focusing when T/S can be a pain...but well worth it!
