i forgot about the 16-35II I have this lens, and it's basically perminantly attached to my 5DII however, it shoots like a 24-55 when i put it on my 7D, so it really has no use on a crop body to me when i have that range covered already 10x over.

I can see you getting more use out of the 70-200 F4 then the 135L, that being said, you would really like the 135L It's a fantastic lens. Lacks weather sealing however, that that's a minor inconvenience, especially if you get yourself a rain hood for the camera.
