I have been debating the same....

I took the plunge and bought the 135 GM and gave it a go today.

I also have the 70-200f4 which I do love but OMG the 135GM on its first outing surpassed any expectations.

Instant Autofocus, loved the aperture ring and loved the results.

In my F-Stop bag I had my 70-200 but it never came out today.

My next test will be on Mountain Bikes

I'm super lazy on editing so pics below got about 10 seconds each in LR

Nice, yes the 135 is great glass.

BUT... I took my camera to the zoo last week (just for fun) with my 135 GM still on it, some very nice shots initially but I just simply didn’t have the reach to achieve my desired goals.

So out came my trusty 100-400 GM and then I even added my 1.4 TC.

I posted a few of the resulting shots here in the ‘this week with your A7/a9 camera’ thread if you are interested.

But for me at least there still isn’t a ‘do it all’ lens
