Um, my mileage varied. I actually changed 85/1.8 to 100/2 for presicely this reason, I felt 85 was to close to 50.

Yup, different strokes indeed. 50 to 100 is like 80mm to 160mm equiv. (a fairly sizeable gap). Heck, I'd love to see a 65 f1.4 in there too (hint hint Canon). 105mm (equiv) has always been one of my very favorite focal lengths.
