Are you sure you want a 50mm? I find it too long as a standard lens on DX but not long enough for portrait.

If you're sure you want a 50 I think the best in terms of decent IQ at a bargain price is the f1.8G. I used it on FX. It's not a lens I wanted on DX.

And this is the great thing about photography - no one's opinion is correct! I love a 50mm on DX for all around photography, and plenty long enough for many portrait situations. But so is my 18mm, my 28mm, my 35mm, my 50mm, my 70mm, my 100mm, my 135mm, and my 300mm.
