Your math is wrong...

I sold the mkII for $2100 and bought a mint, used 6 month old 135f/2 for $800 which made more sense to me since it is an often used range and f/2 made a difference..........and put $1300 back in the bank......

Canon 70-200 MKII = $2199

Canon 70-200 f/4IS ($1149) + Canon 135L ($999) = $2149

From the price perspective, you're not really putting back anything in the bank. Also you can't use used price for the 135L as same can be said for the 70-200MKII. I've seen it as low as 1800 for a used one.

In terms of functionality, there's a reason why Canon makes 4 different versions of the 70-200mm. Just because the 70-200MKII doesn't work for you doesn't mean it shouldn't work for everyone.

I no longer own any 70-200 lens, but if I had the money, I wish I can have the MKII.

Enjoy your lenses!
