You seem to like very contrasty and bright situations, which are difficult for any digital SLR. I think when you are critical of the 85mm it is mainly a result of extreme contrast. I like the shot of the fruit - romã? - which I have never seen before, great colour and just the right depth of field to get the entire fruit and its inside sharp, but distinguish it from the background.

The fruit... I understand pomegranates don't bear fruit in the UK due to cold weather, but I'd think you'd at least have seen one, David... :)
Anyway, that's what it is: a spontaneously opened overripe pomegranate.

Contrasty and bright scenes sure are hard on digital cameras, and lenses, so they're pretty good test situations, I think (fototestes = photo tests).
I don't consider the 85mm bad at all; much on the contrary I find it exceptionally good. Only, I found it does consistently show a considerable amount of quite weird chromatic aberrations under certain circumstances. You can avoid that problem most of times -- but to do that you must be aware of it, is all.

Our pomegranates are a very different colour, with a different size of seed inside - purple, not orange, and the seeds are tiny. They mainly come from the south of France, north Italy, northern Spain - or at least, they used to. We had them every Christmas. Now you can get them all year round. We buy all sorts of strange fruit because Tesco has things from all round the world. I usually pick specimen packs suitable for photography.

(I have removed a link here to an Alamy photo as the link was causing the page to go miles off to the right)

Our pomegranates are the same as the Armenian example. Lovely shot. I work regularly with a perspex light table - a low cost one from Tre-D in Italy. I may put a short review of this table in place. It makes shots like this very easy.

Thanks, Doc.
Pomegranate seeds look just the same here, when you open the fruit. But then if by any reason you let them in the sunlight the color fades. As perhaps you can see on this naturally opened fruit:
