Nikon 85mm 1.8 vs Nikon 70-200 2.8 and Sigma 150mm 2.8?

Lately I've been working towards portrait photography and have used the 70-200 extensively. I already own the Sigma 150mm - but it's a little bit on the long end of the scale.

I like the really beautiful bokeh the 85mm creats (can't afford the 1.4mm / justify it over the 1.8).

I have a D610 with

- 24-70mm 2.8

- 70-200mm 2.8

- 50mm 1.4

- 150mm 2.8 (Sigma non-OS).

Should I go for the 85mm specially made for portraits when I want the creamy and (almost) best bokeh? Or should i opt for somehting like the 135mm DC?

I read online that 70-200 and 85 compliment each other really good.. But waste of money for a serious amateur who like tack sharp images?

Or save the money and buy a wide-angle zoom like the 16-35mm as I don't have any lenses in that range?

I know this debates is viral on the internet - But could not find any debate who also had / mentioned the Sigma 150mm
