The 20mm UD is a special purpose lens, I find I really have to work at it to use it well, it's so comprehensive.
The 85/1.8 shown on my F2AS below cost only $130 shipped through evilBay. It did need to have its filter ring straightened a little, and has some engraving on it, but glass is nice, focusing is very smooth, and diaphragm works nicely. If you can find the H version with a factory AI ring (or even one that's been milled), go for it.
