Maybe it's worth to consider the old Nikon 35-70/2.8? I use it a lot for portraits and figure photography. It's sharp, bokeh is nice and it is built like a tank. It's a slow focuser, but that's not critical.

D2X, D200, D100, D80, CP8400, CPS4, CP4500, CP3100, CP-990, Sony DSC-F717, Canon A620, Fuji E900; Film: Nikon FE, N70, F75
42 Nikkors & some aliens, 7 TCs. Taking pictures for 39 years.
