One issue that you need to be careful with on this lens is the CA when in backlit situations, an area the zooms do much better with.

I'm in the horses for courses camp.

For weddings strictly there is no doubt that the 85L is my favourite lens. I have indeed sold my 70-200 2.8L non IS. As an alternative I have the 135L in case I need slightly longer glass than the 85L but it doesn't happen that often.

I think this is the route I'm headed. 35, 85, 135.

For me weddings are 35, 85 and 100 macro. Can't live without the ability to get close-ups.

My $0.02. For now, keep the 70-200 and pick up the 85 1.8. Should help you decide which route to take.

I spent a little more time with a 1.2 and a 1.8 and I still don't see the point in the 1.2. The 1.8 is great.
