I really don't see a 135mm or 85mm prime can substitute a 100-400 zoom.

Nevertheless I own all of those in respective FL stops.

100-400 GM - landscape, wildlife, zoo, airshow etc that can use TCs.

135 GM - portrait and landscape

Rokinon (Samyang) FE 85/1.4 AF and Loxia FE 85/2.4, former for portrait and latter for landscape/cityscape.

These lenses are very different in FL and main usage, comparing apple to orange.

Yeah I think an 85mm and 100-400 is ideal to cover those use cases above. My mistake was switching to the 200-600 - I had hoped to do more wildlife photography this year but hasn’t happened for lots of reasons.
