for indoor and outdoor portraits

For the money, you can't go wrong with the 50mm f/1.8, particularly if you main use will be portraits.

I have some photos taken with it here; inside shots using available light.

I do find the focal length (80mm equivalent on a camera with a 1.6 crop factor) limiting for other types of inside shots. If I did it again, I'd probably get something like the 28mm f/2.8 , which would bring me closer to a true and more versatile "normal" lens.
