85 mm lens on 5D 1.8 or 1.2L?

I'm thinking of adding a 85 mm to my lenses (24-70L, 50 mm 1.4 and 135 mmL) for use on my 5D.

I will be using it quite exclusively for portraits (in all lighting conditions).

Which one should I take then? Of course there is the price gap... but when it's really worth it I'll eat a litlle less... The narrow DOF and super bokeh are tempting for creative use, but is the lens sharp at 1.2, doesn't it vignets to much on the 5D and is IQ and contrast noticebly better then the 1.8 version?

(Or should I buy the Zeiss ZF 85 mm 1.4 and a converter?)
