Re: You kinda answered your own question...

You needing the flexibility of a zoom says it all, but the 1.3 greater stop and longer focal length of the 85mm had definite advantages. There is a reason why the 85mm f/1.4 is thee headshot portrait prime to have. You can get close, but save for only the most expensive zooms, you'll not be as sharp as a true prime.

If the difference between the two matters to you is a personal preference.
