If you need macro capability and/or IS then the 100mm would be my preference

If you can hand hold or tripod support, then the 135mm is the dogs B

If you are cost restrained then the 85mm will do, but if 85mm is your focal length, then you may want to consider the 85L 1.2

I have owned all three but not the 85L, I now use the 100L, with the 85 I didn't like the IQ, but the 135 was simply magic, however it just lacks IS for my use now, as I can get away with F2.8 by raising the ISO (low light Gigs 1Dx v 1DM3)
