Re: I'd get the Nikkor 85 f/1.8 or Samyang 85 f/1.4...

...the Samyang offers really great IQ if you don't worry about focusing manually, which is ok for staged portraits IMHO.

"Staged Portraits" and "Street Photography" are two very different skills.  The OP asked about the former.

I suggest everyone in this thread read this response.  Once someone's has developed their street style to the point where buying a $1000+ prime make sense, they won't be asking about focal length.  They'll already know.
