Can't go wrong with the nifty fifty SEL5018.

You already have the Sigma, so unless low-light is a priority, stick with it over the SEL3518 (however, if you want faster focus...sell the Sigma to get it).

Your native telephoto options are limited, at least to get good bokeh.

Question, was that 85mm Nikon a manual-focus lens or a modern AF lens you adapted to use for manual? If modern, you may want to give manual another shot with made-for-manual-focus lenses like the Nikon AI/AI-s', Canon FD/nFD's, etc.

Thanks, it was a modern Nikkor for AF.  Do you think the fifty would prove good enough for travel (leaving for mexico in two weeks) and a graduation etc?
