It is a good lens. Times when the 70-200 does not make sense when you just physically do not have the working room to back up with the telephoto lens the 85 mm gets you that portrait FL and you can zoom with your feet if you had to.

What do you mean? 70mm is wider than 85, so why do you need more room with 70-200 than with 85?

You also have less weight and less physical space to take with the 85 mm 1.4 prime if you do not need the 70-200.

The 70-200 has stabilization and I also have the 24-70 VR so for family portraits when handhold shots tend to be more VR helps. I use flash off camera most times with pocket wizards

I have both plus the 58 mm and a couple others
