Just noticed this - perhaps too much time on my hands.
All of my AI-s lenses are built in a similar fashion: there is a silver, corrugated ring, in the center of which is a series of colored vertical engraving lines, with which to register the distance markings, in feet and meters, above this ring. Above this bezel is the focusing ring, and above that is the bezel that moves up and down as you focus.
Except for one lens. The 85 1.4 has no markings on this silver ring. Instead the markings are above it, on a black bezel where, on all the other lenses, the distance markers are. On this lens those markers are on another black bezel, again below the focusing ring, which moves up and down when you focus. Quite an elaborate construction: I wonder if any other Nikon MF lenses are built this way...
