135/2 or 70-200/2.8 II

Which option would you do?  Buy a 135/2 or sell the 70-200/4 IS and buy the 2.8 II.  (note: I dropped my 70-200/4 IS lens hood. Just the hood but it cracked and I made a ghetto superglue repair which fully returned its usefulness) I will have to buy a new hood if I sell the f4, or would I?

The need here is because there are times I need faster than f4 like stage photography, indoor swimming, and indoor equestrian events. I also have the 85/1.8 but it's too short too often for those, but usually fast enough.

So would you go for f2 or 2.8 and versatility?  Using a 7D btw and I plan on making this move when the next round of lens rebates hit.
