yes, i have the 70-200 F4 as well, it`s a great lens, and i`m learning to appreciate it more and more every time I use it.

I`ve seen a few shots with the 135L and i just love the way it handles the contrasts and bukah and such. And i really want to test it out with portrait work to see how it handles for me.

I also want to have that little bit more flexibility with indoor shooting with a longer focal length, and it`s half the price of upgrading to the 70-200 F2.8

and as you said, if i pick myself up a 1.4 and 2.0tc, i have a whole lot of room to play with, and still maintain the auto focus and still a decent fast lens
