>I want to use it for indoor/low light.

I had a 85 f1.8 AF (non-D) and used it with my film (F5, N80) and later with DSLR D70. Indoors was a problem for me because it was too long especially on my D70 (due to crop factor). I later sold it due to non-use.

After I upgraded to D800, I re-purchased this FL but the newer 85 f1.8G AFS, because I like the creamy bokeh of this lens and perfect for portraits. I like it a lot and much improved over the non-D. It is still sometimes too long in my small apartment room. But I mainly use it outdoors on a lawn or out with the kids in a park.

You need to decide how small/big is the "indoors" in your case.
