David,

I've had the 70-200 IS with my 5DII and just picked up a 135 f/2 (used, UT date code). 70-200 is definitely bulkier, yet more versatile - no surpise, but one other thing to consider -- what f-stop do you typically or intend to shoot? Wide open and especially around f/8 the 135 is much sharper edge to edge. However, if you're looking for a lot of depth of field and go out to f/32, it's surprising how little difference there is at the same focal length.
Good luck. Let us know what you ultimately do.
