I've bought the 85 PC because it's a lot cheaper than it's younger brother ;-) The 85 PC tilts too, btw.
Sorry, James from Texas, can't help you with your question. I've read that the PC-E is more suited to spontaneous portrait-photography and other handheld-uses because of it's faster to use aperture-mechanism.
As far as I know (I could be wrong) the original 85PC contains at least one ED-element and the PC-E not.
Sorry for my crappy English.
