Exactly one year ago I was going through the same decision and UNFORTUNATELY I chose the 135DC over the 70-200 VRII. The reason being portability and using something different than the majority for that DIFFERENT look people talk about.

So far I havent been able to get one sharp photo at aperture larger than f4.5. The camera and the lens have been to the service 3 times, each of which took 4 weeks to turn around.

Please don't let anyone tell you otherwise. When it comes to optics- The latest technology IS THE BEST choice.

Fans of the old gear and legends such DC lenses will tell you otherwise and even show you photos.

But don't choose the old glass over new unless you have time and money to waste.
