The 18-135 will give you f4.5 max aperture at 35mm, so you should think about whether or not you want to pay 200$ or so for the extra 1 and 5/6 stops that f2.4 will give you.

For indoor portraits, the 50mm f1.8 seems like a good bet. The 35 is in the sweet spot range for sharpness and image quality of the 18-135, so less of a necessity in my opinion.

Thanks. In that case, I do not see the any major need for 35mm F2.4.

There is a chance image quality at 35mm F4.5 may be different for 18-135 and 35mm lenses  (For 18-135mm lens it is wide open where as the other lens it is a stopped down)
