I need help deciding in the 85 and100 range. Would like your opinions on what would be best bang for the buck in IQ. Maybe there isn't a huge difference? Or maybe there is something not listed in the price range ($100-200). Thanks.

Some good advice already provided on here. The only thing I would add is that the type of photography should be a factor in the lens selection. For instance, I have a Takumar 105/2.8 that is unbelievably sharp and great for most telephoto work (landscapes, birds, etc.) , but also have a Takumar 85/1.8 that has stunning bokeh at most apertures as well as pleasing "glow" wide open, making it my go-to for tele-portraits. Both are fantastic lenses, but really very different.

Good luck with your decision(s).

If you take a great photograph, I really don't care whether it came from a Leica or smartphone. Just share it.
