It's less about the money and more about just evaluating is the focal length and f/2 worth it over my 70-200. We're talking the visible difference in a shot on this lens vs zooming to 135mm at f/2.8.

Good point. This is a fairly sober evaluation of the 135 vs 70-200 f/2.8 @ 135:

However note that comparison involves the 70-200 mk II; if you've got the original then the situation might be slightly different.

If you ever find the bulk of the 70-200 a hassle, I think you'd love the 135 for the shooting experience alone.
