I have the 85/1.4D, 70-200VR-I, and the Sigma 85/1.4
As Rodolfo Paiz said, life w/o 70-200 just seems incomplete. I used to use my 70-200 on my F100 for portraits all the time. Even after I got the 85, I find myself using the 70-200 more.
If you're in a studio, it's probably better to have the 85... but if you shoot outdoors, and sometimes, shooting location is a little less in your control, the 70-200 is truly versatile. If I'm feeling demanding, and am in the 70-90mm range, sure, I'll switch out for the 85. Otherwise, the 70-200 just stays on the camera. It's an excellent workhorse that I will feel a little naked without.
But that's not to say the 85mm is bad! Of course, if I were you, and am deciding on the 85, I'd go for the newer Sigma. Still have the 85/1.4D, but prefer the Sigma MUCH better.
I'd get the 70-200 VR-II first, then save up for the Sigma next if you shoot a lot of portraits.
