85 or 70-200E

Hi all

Just to get people's personal opinions..... I have the NIKON AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED.

Do most of you think an 85mm f 1.8s for my Z6ii is still money well spent or am I just doubling up on the 70 - 200?

I do take portraits.

I do love shallow depth of field for portraits.

Pros for the 85 - smaller lens and may be if I wait for the 1.2 version brilliant bokeh?

Cons for the 85 - not money well spent given the 70 - 200 can do just about the same job.

I'm not looking for in depth tech. Just for those who have one or the other, do you love them, or maybe not so much? Just trying to get a `feel' for what people think.

I mention the version of the 70- 200 specifically because it's the best(?) of the G versions.

Many thanks.

P.S I love my FTZ adapter!
