You are only getting an increase of 7mm in aperture diameter going from the 85/1.4 to the 135/2. The 105/2 actually has a smaller max aperture size than the 85/1.4 (52.5mm vs. 60.7mm respectively). Unless you are enamored with the effects of the DC feature or simply want a little more focal length, I don't think you are gaining all that much with either lens. Now a 200/2 with a 100mm aperture would be a significant jump (at an even more significant cost though).
