A follow up question for ALL, specially those who have the 85 1.4/8G, would the 85 1.8G a good choice for portrature and indoor basketball in small dimly lit gyms? Is the AF fast enough?

I do plan on purchasing a 70-200 f4 maybe 6 months for now but I know that would be to slow. Maybe I hit the jackpot and can afford the 70-200 2.8 but chances are slim.
