85mm 1.8D or 80-200 2.8D

Hello all.

I currently own a D90 with the 35mm 1.8G and the 85mm 1.8D. I love both lenses, but I am currently tossing over in my mind the idea of purchasing the 80-200 2.8D.

I've gotten a lot of use out of the 85mm, but I was never thrilled with its performance until stopped down to around 2.5-3. My question is, would the 80-200 perform well enough wide open at 85mm so that I wouldn't miss the 85 1.8D if i sold it? I use it mostly for portraits while the 35mm is my main walk around lens.

thanks in advance.
