Sony Zeiss 24-70/2.8 or 135/1.8?

This is a question for those of you fortunate enough to have one - or preferably both - of the subject lenses. I've always wanted a Zeiss lens, ever since purchasing my first SLR, a Yashica FX-3 in 1980. I currently own an Alpha 900 and am feeling the tug of a Zeiss again.

My lenses include a few years old Minolta 28-75/2.8 and an old Minolta 135/2.8. I'm torn between replacing the 28-75 with the Zeiss 24-70 or the 135 with the Zeiss 135. While I would certainly use the zoom more, I've always loved the 135mm focal length. I had a 135mm with that old Yashica and took some great photos with it. I only acquired the Minolta 135mm fairly recently and haven't had occasion to use it much yet, but I know I will when the opportunity presents itself.

If it were your decision, which would you choose?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
