Hey all,

So, I really like my 70-200 f4L, but it gets significantly less use than my 24-105.  I would really like a prime, or potentially multiple primes for mostly portrait use.  Almost all my pictures are of people, candid and posed.  So... my question is, would you all sell a 70-200 f4L (non-IS) for a 135L?  Or would you do the same thing for a combo of a 50mm 1.4 and a 85mm 1.8 or 100mm f2?  I do currently have a 40mm 2.8, and I would probably have to sell that in either of these cases as well.  I know there will be some who will probably suggest the 70-200 2.8, but I don't really want to do the weight or the price of that one.  Thoughts?  Would I regret this?
