Unless you want to omit the foreground in your panos or don't mind a blurry foreground, you'll need to focus stack a lot at either of those two focal lengths. Focus stacking adds a huge amount of work and doesn't work well much of the time. The D850 does about a 1-2 GB tiff pano with everything in focus from roughly 20mm to 50 in a single row.

Was thinking more for distance photos, cityscape type pano. Thx

Since you will be using them at distance hopefully someone will tell you how those lenses are optimized for distance sharpness vs. up closer as in portraits.  I would think the 85 might be optimized for portrait distances for example.
