I'm with you. I think I'm leaning towards a 135mm FF setup vs. 85mm... Which I could always get later if needed. Now the question of which brand body and lens!

Good choice on the 135. I find 85mm too short for portraiture that will have bokeh in it. Perfect for the studio though.  One thing regarding shooting f/2 with a FF is you will need to shift your focus point in the vf and know that the 6D and 5Dm3 focus capabilities are night and day.

What do you have in mind for lighting? The shot samples I posted were flash filled btw. I was using on-camera flash then. Now I use multiple speedlites in HSS mode and umbrellas as well.

Guess my question should be another thread?
