85mm f1.8 vs 100mm f2 for 5DII

Advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm debating between a 85mm f1.8 vs 100mm f2 prime. I have a 50mm f1.4 and 70-200mm f4 IS for a new 5D Mark II... I'd like more 'reach' than the 50mm gives and a faster aperture than f4 for indoor, mid-type tele- reach. I'd prefer a light-weight prime to a zoom.

Generally I do mostly outdoor landscape photos, but occasional indoor events too; as yesterday when I found that I wanted something with more reach and faster than the 70-200mm. Which would readers recommend and why? Thanks in advance,
Best regards, Sandy
