I've owned both the 100L and the 135L and prefer the 135L by far. So much so that I sold the 100L shortly after I obtained the 135L because I never used it. I'm not much of a macro guy and had ended up using the 100L as a portrait lens and for that purpose, the 135 is the winner.
The 135L is definitely superior at focusing speed and bokeh. As far as I remember, weight, shape, and size are all similar. Sharpness is really a wash and not a concern between these two lenses. The 100L of course has IS and is able to focus much closer however is a stop slower.
For me, this is not even a tough choice, 135L all the way.
Of course, this is my personal opinion and I respect anyone else who prefers the 100L. Again, I'm talking strictly portraits here.
