How can anyone recommend either one if we don't know what you intend to shoot, what conditions you shoot in, what other lenses you own, and your aesthetic style? What works for me isn't necessarily going to work for you. I say this in all earnestness not because I am trying to antagonize you, but because I think it would ultimately serve you far, far better to think about these questions and understand that an informal poll isn't going to provide you with meaningful information.
I've never understood these "which lens do I buy?" threads. If the question has to do with finding lenses to suit a specific goal, then all that one needs to do is look at the specifications and imaging performance and choose the most suitable match. If one is unclear about what they want to shoot or how to weigh their selection criteria, then soliciting others' opinions isn't going to change that indecision. The only real way to discover what works for you is for you to try it out. Otherwise, you could end up choosing something without ever knowing whether the other option(s) might have been even better.
For what it's worth--and from the above, it's not worth much if anything--I use the EF 85/1.2L II over my EF 70-200/2.8L IS. But that has no bearing on what YOU should use, even if I explain in detail what I use this lens for and how I use it.
