Interesting idea, but I really want something faster than the 16-85 .. I have considered the 28-75 2.8 though over the primes.

While the 85 is a great lens, I don't feel that it worth the money on a DX--85 is a great length on FF, but 128 equivalent on a DX is a bit too long for most portrait work.

Personally, I think 50mm on DX is better for portraits. The 35 makes a great "normal" lens. Another option to consider is the 16-85. This is an excellent lens that you could start out with and then supplement or replace with one or more fixed length lenses after you find out which focal lengths best meet your needs.
