fast prime for indoors, but still need reach
1

Thinking about a fast prime for indoor photos in low lighting (think indoor exhibits at a zoo).  I don't need a ton of reach, but something like 85mm or 105mm would probably be fine.

At the moment, I have the 50mm f/1.8, which is nice and fast, but maybe a bit short.  I also have a Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro, which is great, too, but not as fast, and I can't always get f/2.8 if I'm too close.

So, any suggestions?  Three lenses come to mind: the 85mm f/1.8, the 85mm f/1.4 and the 105mm f/1.4.  I know the prices are wildly different between these three.  Also, I don't really do portraits, at least not of people, but I am interested in animals & nature.
