35mm 1.4 vs 2.0 or wait for mark II?


I preordered Canon 5d Mark III, 85mm 1.2L, grip and 600 EX RT.

My next lens i wanted was 35mm 1.4L but i heard rumors that 35mm 1.4L II is coming soon.

I can probably wait few months? maybe till end of the yr or early next yr.

Should I just purchase 35mm 1.4L now or just get cheaper 2.0 and use it while for the mark II to come out and sell when i get mark II?

or just wait for mark II and get Gitzo 1542T and Markins Q3 Traveler now?

Thank You
