Should I sell my 100 f/2.8 macro and/or 70-200 f/4 for 135L?

Three different lenses with different uses. The 135 is a pretty specific lens. The only use I ever found for a 135 was shooting tennis. But it's a good portrait lens for certain types of portraits. The one you want to keep for sure is the zoom. That is a "must have" lens for sure. In terms of optical quality all three lenses are terrific.

Thanks for your info

I love my 70-200 f/4; I just wonder what am I going to get by trading my 70-200 f/4L with 135L

Since my 70-200 f/4 can still produce stunning bokeh @ 200mm and f/4

Not enough to make it worth it, gain that is.

Do not get me wrong the 135 f2.0 L is the best piece of glass I have and I am not sure if you are referring to the IS version of the 70-200 f4.0 L but that is the next best piece of glass I have.

For a zoom, the 70-200 f4.0 L IS is absolutely stunning and it is more versatile than the 135, however the 135 is unmatched at f2.0 but even on full frame it's an awkward focal length.

Love both, don't sell anything save some more and buy the 135 as an addition, it is one of the cheaper L lenses.
