This is between 85 f1.8 and 135 f2. Both are within ear shot of each other cost-wise. The 85 1.2L is too much.

I'm deciding between the two and I realize both were designed to excel mostly for portraits.

"L" designation aside, I want to know from those who have experience/own both if they prefer one over the other for PORTRAITS.
