Pretty much zero reason NOT to get the 50mm 1.8, as it costs literally around $100. Best lens value ever I think.
For an 85mm, the best bang-for-buck seems to be the Nikon 85mm f1.8 G. It has no aperture ring however if that's something you require.
The Nikon 105mm F2.0 AF DC Lens is also something I've used extensively and while pricey, is absolutely amazing.
