Re: I'd get the Nikkor 85 f/1.8 or Samyang 85 f/1.4...

"Staged Portraits" and "Street Photography" are two very different skills.  The OP asked about the former.

I suggest everyone in this thread read this response.  Once someone's has developed their street style to the point where buying a $1000+ prime make sense, they won't be asking about focal length.  They'll already know.
