Re: Best non L medium tele

I would go with the 100 f2. The additional reach gained with the 85 vs. the 50 isn't that great.

The 28-135 is a good consumer lens, but with the almighty resolving power of the 5DII I'm afraid you will be disappointed. That body really demands primes or L zooms.

I would recommend saving your pennies and go for the 24-105L. It is IMHO the best all-around zoom for the 5DII (24-70L fans will argue that point). Certainly it is more expensive that the 28-135, but it is a much (much) better lens.

You spent a bunch of money on the best SLR money can buy. Don't hang a cheap lens on it. I learned a long time ago - The most expensive thing you can do is buy cheap equipment.
