Poll: Currently shooting with EF 85 1.8--would the 100 F2 be too redundant?

Hello everybody,

As the title says, I currently have the EF 85 1.8 and have used it for about 7 years. I really, really like that lens because it's so small and light. I have the 85L ii as well, but I actually prefer using the EF because it is so much smaller and faster focusing. I have been really thinking about getting a used 100 F2 because of my positive experience with the former. Would it be too redundant? 85 vs 100 is not that big of a difference in FL and it is a tad slower as well. I have the 135L but use it pretty seldom because I think its a bit too long, but I really appreciate the results I get from it!

My concern is that the 85 1.8 and 100 F2 would be so similar that the difference would be pretty negligible and the images more or less the same. That would mean I would just be buying stuff which I don't need!

Thanks for your opinion--I'm also shooting on a full frame 5Div.

Thanks!
