seeking advice: 85f1.8 or 28-70f2.8?

I know "it depends", and either option entails compromises.

But I have the Lumix lens on order.  It ends up costing about $750 shipped here.  I could get the coming Sigma DG DN zoom locally for less than $1000.  I don't want to spend for both.

I realize the lumix will AF quicker w/ DFD,  is longer & 1 stop faster.  But I love the flexibility of a zoom, and the Sigma is only 110g heavier.  Probably just as sharp.  I find i most often stop down for greater DoF.

Suggestions?
