Those are wonderful images, thanks for sharing them.

I went ahead and bought a "pristine and mint" copy of the 85mm f/1.8D for $300 on ebay from a reputable gear seller.

I'm attracted to all the many positives I've read about, and not overly concerned about the few negs, though glad to have been educated on them.

I really like the idea of a manual aperture ring for this portrait-style lens on my D7000.  (I've enjoyed using it on my Fuji X100).
