I suppose its just a shame there is no a 2.8 constant zoom lens that extends to around 85mm on FF that allows for good portraits. 70 is too short.

For portraits we have 85mm f1.4 lenses.  Or, if you want something smaller and lighter, there is the 85mm f1.8 lens.

Or you could use a 70-200 f2.8 lens.  That does pass through 85mm, you know.

70mm is too short for what?

Better define versatile.
