Portraits on a D700...is the 85mm 1.4 still the prefered lens?

Title says it all. Have a D700 on it's way along with the 24-70mm. Is the 85mm 1.4 still "the" portrait lens when put on a full frame? Or would it be better to buy a 80-200 2.8 for more flexibility? Can probably only afford one at this time...

Thanks!
