Exactly right. And if you're in a crowded environment, shooting with a 135 is a lot easier to move around with than a 70-200 f2.8. If its your job, thats a different situation. I got the 135 to supplement my Tamron 28-75 f2.8 in a bag. Its a nice change of pace to the Tamron and vice versa. Its the first time that i bought a lens mostly on the basis on how it fit in my camera bag and how it supplemented another lens. Glad i did, now.

hi phil, are you happy with the performance of your 28-75mm ?

Yes, i like it a lot, especially the close-focus capability.  Also a bit shorter and more lightweight than the Sony 24-105.  Some shooters have both lenses, esp. if they travel i guess.  The longer range of the 24-10 is a particular advantage.    Its easy to make a case for either lens - we're lucky to have choices today

The IBIS of the A7rii is plenty good for the Tamron, but lacks a bit on the Canon 135 that i carry.  So when shooting the 135, i have to bump up the shutter speed to 1/50 to 1/100.
