There is for practical purposes no difference between the two lenses.

Only if you feel that improved sharpness at f2 is not a practical difference.

Used to be the 85 was better for basketball because it's 1/3 stop faster....but with improvement of image quality with high ISO that no longer matters.

Only with cameras that aren't noisier at higher ISO.
