Lately whenever Canon reissues a lens, the new lens costs much more than the original version. Be careful of what you wish for.

Do you want the 135mm f2 to be $1,800 for some marginal improvements?

The improvements in the recently updated lenses have been anything but marginal. People said the exact same thing when the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II was released and that lens is now legendary.
