I own both - 85mm is my most used lens.

Not sure what you are shooting, so it's difficult to offer suggestions.

I own two 105mm (bellows and AF-D versions) and the 85mm f/1.4 G. The 85 is my most-used lens, and the 105s are rarely used. I used to own the 85mm f/1.4 AF-D and it was also my #1 lens. Something about that focal length really works with me. I'm shooting FX (D700, soon D800).
