    The new 85mm has the Nano coat in it, ED elements and is a newer optical design that's sharper and provides more control with the D3, 300, and 700.

    However if you're shooting on an F70D, F60D, F55, F50D, F-401, F-801, F-601, F3AF, F-501, PRONEA S, or other manual focus camera, it won't work.

    Which one is the new one? The PC-E?

    The PC-E is the more recent optical design, and it will work in all exposure modes with your D700. (This does not apply to all Nikon cameras) The older lens has a preset aperture - you have to stop down to the working aperture before taking the picture.

    For that reason, I'd say it was an easy decision.

    They both cover full frame.

    The PC has a minimum aperture of f/45, the PC-E's is f/32.

    They both have the same 1:2 maximum reproduction ratio.

    Best,
    Helen

    I'm curious; why do you want a PC lens for portrait work?
