Im slightly apprehensive about the 85mm as the minimal focus length is quite far large at 0.8 and hence id be pretty much on another persons table to take a photo.

I'm afraid I can't help other than to say both are excellent optically as I have both (I actually came here in the hope of pictures of food! :P).  However, if you're worried about the minimum focussing distance, could you add some (Kenko) extension tubes?  Just a thought.
