Nikon 135 F2 DC or 105mm F2 DC on D800E?

I've been reading the rave reviews on both of these lenses.

I am interested in the 105 versus the 135 F2 DC.

Which is the better?

I have 24-70, 50mm 85mm F1.8 and I love the background bokeh effect of full frame cameras.

I don't have any lenses longer than 85mm except a 165mm Pentax 67 lens.

105mm seems fairly close for portraits but perhaps a bit short to be used for telephoto shots. 135mm seems a bit close for many portraits but handy for more zoomed in type shots.

Opinions?

Greg.
