i have 10-22, and 17-55 IS.
thinking about 70-200 f/4 IS
85 f/1.8 + 135 f/2
What do you shoot most? The 70-200 is most versatile, but the 85 + 135 combo is better suited for portraits.
cats and random shit so i can say "wow look how sharp my pictures are"
Clearly you need L glass.

Lol at least you are honest.
I'd go with the primes.
IMO, on a cropped sensor, those focal lengths have a bit too much reach. IMO, those two lenses will bode much much better on a FX body, which obviously is a whole new ball park. I'd go with the 70-200mm personally, which I think you'd use more because of the versatility and it's a bit wider at the same time.
Plus, you get the "oooh" and "aaaah" factor if that's what you're going for with a big ol telezoom.
i'd go primes, since it would be f/1.8 and f/2 vs f/4IS because you're using it indoors for cats!!
Doesnt have to be indoors. Maybe he means Jaguars or Bengal Tigers
yeah the f4 thing is what makes me hesitant. I've used the lens before and I liked it, but that was outdoors at a kart track in full sun
plus the 135 will be 189 f2.8 if I pick up an extender down the road. i'm thinking that will be more useful to me than the 70-200 f4 or even the 70-200 2.8 non IS
