Photography Question

Portrait lens with digital ?

I almost decided what lens i'll get but still not sure. For landscape and portrait (models and kids static and moving), is it better to have:
- 17-40 f4 + 50mm 1.4 / 1.8
- 17-40 f4 + 85mm 1.8

I incline toward the second solution with the 85mm but with digital the 50mm is almost a 80mm so I am afraid I may miss the something in the 40mm-85mm range. I think that I am also a little bit afraid to lose flexibility with prime lens. What do you think ? 50mm or 80mm? Will the 85mm be not redundant when I buy a 80-200 ?
