I agree. Also, what "terms of compression" do you think are needed for SP??? I shoot SP mostly with WA (and zero concerns about compression). So far 90mm is the longest focal length I have used for SP.

Zooms = variable compressions as primes = fixed ones.

200mm will certainly give more compression, but honestly, 70-200 is just difficult to work with. In order to achieve the compression you want. You will have to be at 150mm+, otherwise, I don’t feel the len’s “rendering” (how it looks compared to other lenses) is worth it. These are big, heavy lenses and 200mm is really long for street. Lastly, they aren’t as good in low light either. My 85mm 1.4 is incredibly bright, and the 1.8 is pretty dang close.
85mm is my “general use” lens. I photograph animals with it too though, hence why I chose 85mm over, say, the 35mm or 50mm. If SP was my goal, id probably go with a 50mm. It always felt a little easier to get the composition than an 85mm at times. The 85mm still makes me back up more than I expect on occasion. There have been times when I couldn't even get the shot that I wanted because I didn't have enough room to back up or put the right distance between the subject and I.
