why would ypu wanna shoot with the 85/1.8 when the 135L is everythig the 85/1.8 is, plus no egregious purple fringing and smaller MFD The 100L offers two things the offers don't; IS & Macro. The two keepers are the 100L & 135L.

btw, I've never experienced focusing woes with the 100L.

You would shoot with the 85 if the focal length of the other's is too long.  A lot of times when I am using these lenses I am taking pictures of kids performances and I don't know how close I will be sitting to the stage until I am there and sitting down.
