From your last comment, I gather that the length difference between the Tokina (100mm) or the Tamron (90mm) is not that considerable when compared with the 85mm?

That's right. I'd be classifying all those in the same basic range. You'd have to move to 135mm to make a difference to me.

In the studio, I often use 85 and 105 almost interchangably. There's a difference of course, just not much. When I move to 150mm, I know I'm in a different range.
