Thanks, carstenw and Samuli!
I hadn't heard about the different bokeh with the 50mm MP so I'll have to give it more thought. I agree about 35 and 50 being so close that I'm not sure it would be wise to get both.
I still don't really understand the focus shift problem with the 85mm f1.4. If I'm focusing and shooting at 1.4, and it looks sharp, why would the focus shift? It's already wide open.
There won't be focus shift shooting wide open, only if you focus wide open and then stop down (as modern cameras do) to f/2 or f/2.8. I think already f/4 is okay (enough increase in the depth of field to bring sharp focus back inside the range), but I am not certain, and it might be f/5.6.
