One thing you have to consider is that if a 135mm 1.8G is released it will probably cost double what the DC costs now. It will almost certainly have VR, nano crystal coat, and definitely AF-S though so the premium that you'll pay for the new lens might be worth it. As is always said though, if you need the lens now, the choice is obvious. I would wait though to see what Nikon does in the near future. I have a feeling we'll be seeing a replacement for the 135mm, 300mm f4, 20mm 1.8, 80-400mm and possibly the 24-70mm. The last one is pure speculation but the others all have patents and seem like realistic lenses that Nikon would make. Maybe a 50mm 1.2G too...
