For competent opinions on the old lenses I suggest you could check Rørslett's reviews:

He is not too keen on 85/2 ais it seems.

I actually have a copy of 85/1.8 HC, which he likes better. I found though that wide open the bokeh is a bit what they call "nervous", check out the toes:

I like that lens better at f/2.8:

This 85/1.8 HC is not what I would call tiny though, and, IMHO, the 85/1.8 AF-D is probably a better lens optically, not to mention 85/1.4 AF-D, but, as I understand, neither of these is what you're looking for.
