If it's a choice between getting just an 85mm f/1.4G and an 85mm f/1.8G and a 135mm, I would go for the latter, personally.

However, my suggestion would be to try first buying an 85mm f/1.8G which is a fantastic lens for the money. The 1.4G is a better lens, but the law of diminishing returns comes in with a vengeance.

Then if you still find yourself wanting something longer, then get the 135mm.
