Next full frame lens

Hey there,

I'm James and I just recently bought a very well taken care of 5d mark i (classic) and I also have a canon 80d which I love!

My question is what lens should I buy next, i want an EF lens so I can use it on both of my cameras.

My current EF lenses are the 70-200 f2.8 is ii and the 50mm 1.8.

I'm looking to purchase both the 85mm 1.8 and the 17-40 f4l but I don't know which I should buy first, I would use the 85mm for mostly portraits but I have the 70-200 which is already a great portrait lens. The 17-40 would be used for landscapes and general wide angle shots, basically just for hobby.

So my question is which one should I buy first? Will the 85mm 1.8 be that different from the 70-200? I really want the 17-40 because I do not have a wide angle lens for my 5d, but if the 85mm 1.8 is the better choice I will just wait on the 17-40.

Your opinion is greatly appreciated and thanks for reading!
