The 150mm is a real macro lens. The 85mm is faster and more compact. Background separation and bokeh are wonderful for both. My philosophy is to start with something more versatile like the 85mm or even the 50mm and get the telemacro later if needed.

I think those are really good points. The 85mm would have more CA than would the 150 (I think). The 150 would be great for nature macro shots, the 85mm is great for portraits.
