I’m seriously considering the 135 and weighting the option on this 50, instead. My focus is replacing my 100mm 2.8L for product photography of reptiles as focus stacking isn’t practical and even on a 5DM4 at f/22 the image is too soft for my liking and still not enough DOF which requires taking a farther away shot and cropping which results in lower MP. Being able to shoot f/8 at 100 200 shutter might allow use of continuous lighting which would considerably improve my workflow. From looking at some MTF data both lenses may perform well enough for my application at f/4 which would be gravy.

Only you can decide. Both lenses are apparently stellar performers ( apparently because I only own 50mm, so I only read about the 135mm ). I would say hire both for a day or so and then you will know which one suit better your workflow.
