85mm 1.8 or 105mm 2.8

Hey! So I've been thinking about selling my 70-200 VRII and buying Sigma 35mm 1.4 and a portrait lens. I don't know which I should buy. The 85mm has the advantage of being much newer and 1.8, which is awesome for shallow DOF portraits on my D800. The 105mm Micro, on the other hand, is Macro, has IS and made in Japan.

I'm not into macro photography but it's nice to have the option to use it if I ever grow fond of it.

I know they're both excellent glasses and I hope you guys can give me some advice on it.

Thanks!

Nikon D800
