I will not buy one, but not for any of your reasons.
A simple No would be a good option.

I have a bunch of portrait lenses at the moment, and I can't justify spending north of 2k for another one. I might buy a used Sigma 135 down the road.

I have no reasons to ever get one - I don't portraits and the Zeiss 135mm fills all my needs anyway (aside two other zooms covering the FL)

I shoot Nikon, and own the Zeiss ZF.2 135/2 Apo Sonnar. Nevertheless I've seen the RF 135 gallery in DPReview and have to admit that the quality of this lens is impressive.

Probably not. I mean it seems like it will be a fantastic lens, but I probably won't use the focal length too much. I'll probably just rent it

A lot of votes for not wanting to spend $2100 for the lens. I feel it's priced right but I can see a lot of people would rather have the 70-200 f2.8

I think the used EF 135 will do fine ... for the little need I have for it. The new one may be better, but it certainly isn't worth the 4x price. (700Ä vs. 2940Ä)

Theoretically the new one might work with stacked lenses, but at that price I'm not going to check. The old one doesn't.

I've never owned a 135mm lens. The 70-200 2.8 fits my needs better, working for portraits, low light, sports, etc. I'm sure the RF 135 is an amazing lens, just not for me.

I see no reason to get the RF over the sigma EF.

No adapter. I've added some RF lenses recently so now I have a mix of EF and RF. It's honestly a PITA keeping track of the adapter. I could get an adapter for each lens, but that's expensive and adds size and weight. I can't wait for the day when I can afford to go all RF.

I said no I'll keep using my EF version. But I probably will when/if my EF dies.

Thatís one of the reasons I donít have any RF lenses, the adapter stays on the camera all the time and I never need to worry about if one lens doesnít need it. The other is how expensive they are, itís really hard to justify RF lenses when EF works so well.

The RF70-200 made both my Canon and Sigma 135ís expendable. No adapters needed, more comfortable plus image stabilization. The RF70-200 has great IQ, more versatile and in my comparison shooting the extra stop from 1.8/2 to 2.8 was barely noticeable.

From a $$ point of view, I traded in both 135ís and the EF70-200 and came away with the RF70-200

That said, Iím not planning on picking up the RF135, but if I can get myself back into shooting HS indoor sports I might reconsider.

As far as the poll goes, I also sold all 3 EF mount 85ís to buy the RF85 1.2. I do prefer the 85 for portraits as well

Probably not. Well, yes if Amazon makes a Black Friday price error and sell it for $99 or whereabouts.

Too big, too heavy, too expensive, too niche.

I voted "no", for several reasons. The biggest of which is the fact that I will likely never own an RF-mount camera. I have also moved away from prime lenses because I just can't force myself to use them. The difference between f/1.8 and f/2.8 is, for the most part, irrelevant to me. Which leaves me with focal length. I'm good with f/2.8 zooms from 24mm to 200mm. I did hold on to two 'essential' prime lenses: efs 60mm f/2.8 macro for my 90D, and Rokinon 12mm f/2.8 FE for my full frame bodies. Equivalent zooms exist for neither of them.

Agreed. I for one will not be buying because Iíll be using my adapted Sigma 135/1.8, which is spectacular. If I used it all the time and often for action, Iíd think about the change, but I use it for static subjects.

I put $50 meike adapters on my EF lenses so for me, I see no reason. It is substantially more expensive to buy canon RF equivalents for virtually no gain, and I have no juggling of adapters this way.

There has to be some other major reason for me to spend $1200 more instead of $50 to justify the move to canon 135 RF.
