I currently have a budget of $1000 and I'm looking to upgrade my gear ....my primary aim is a sharper portrait but im undecided im either going to get a canon 135mm L f2 or a canon 70d please offer your suggestions. ... oh I currently shoot with a canon t3 .. thanks in advance

By the way... which lens would you use in the case you go with the 70D?

The 135mm f2L is an amazing lens, not only for resolution, but in overall IQ (out of focus quality, color rendition,...) and probably would improve quality already on the t3. A drawback is that 135mm is a great portrait lens on full frame sensors... on aps-c it can be a bit too long. I would use something more in the 50-85mm range, but I guess this depends more on personal taste.
