yes I do - the 85 1.8G - which i like a lot, too. for me, which I use depends on the circumstance. but for portraits, I generally lean to the 50. Not because its a 'better lens' in terms of quality of glass. But because i like what i get from it in a way that has nothing to do with pixel-peeping. It has everything to do with the relational distance to the subject when shooting DX and how that contributes to creating the photo. But thats just me. You might buy a 50 and never use it. Lots of people seem to think that if you've got a 35 and an 85, there's no reason to have a 50. Personally, I happen to disagree.
