Do bear in mind that the 85 GM is not capable of autofocus at quite as high speeds as others.

np - for portrait style the focusing speed is fine for me.  I have other long and longer glass that focuses fast for sports, etc if needed.    Soccer matches, I grab the 100-400gm.  Birds the 200-600.  
I know the 135 gm is a fast focuser and sharper wide open, but, for example, on todays pet shots, that reach would have been too long and I would not have been able to back up as much as I would need to.
Perhaps in a Mark II version they'll put the faster focusing in this.
