Re: Do I really need prime portrait lens?

I have both the 85 1.4D and the 70-200 F/2.8. I found I mostly shoot portrait with the 70-200 since it pleases me more. The focal length I like is 150-200mm.

The statement that one would need a prime for a potrait is obsolete.

Try to shoot with your 70-200 f/4 and have a look at the results. If not happy you can always buy a 85 f/1.8.
