Thank you Hieu and tjbrock42. It's a tough decision...
Would it make sense to have both 85L and 70-200? I understand the zoom covers the FL of the 85 but I would like to have the large aperture for low light scenes or maybe some better backgrounds on my outdoor portraits.
I have both and they are different to me, however, the 2.8 version is enough for most people. I have the f/4 IS, which is my lens to take hiking, shoot pet agility, sports and just a little bit of wildlife. If you're not shooting below 2.8, stick with the 70-200mm - it is amazingly sharp, great colors and versatile. If you plan to shoot at the wider apertures....well......you should know the answer.
