All things being equal I'd take the 135mm for portrait, but given the space I have available where I'm most likely to use it an 85mm is more practicle for me. I have used the Nikon 85mm f1.4G and liked it, but I went for the Sigma 85mm f1.4 HSM based on cost and I'm very happy with it. I have also used the Nikon 85mm f1.8G which is much smaller and lighter, but I prefer the IQ of the Sigma (and it's a tad faster of course).
