If you really like old school 105, get the 1.8. I have both 1.8 and 2.5 and never use the latter. I often want to argue for the 2.5 and especially my latest few new bodies I tool out the 2.5 and try to prove it but the 1.8 always came out better. The 1.8 is heavier though, admittedly; and the 2.5 is good enough (if you force yourself to forget the 1.8).

The 135/2.8 is a class lower (still good).
