85USM is your best bet

The 85USM is probably Canon's best lens value. On either a 1:6 body or FF, it's really something. The photos sure look like they were from an L + the focus is instant and silent. Less than $400 - we are talking high value here. I own it, and the other two lenses you are considering. All are excellent (the 50 being disappointing wide open for the money), but the 85 gets used most often. I never leave home without it.
