Re: 50mm is ideal portrait lens on dx format

Not really, the Nikon AF-S 60mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro, Nikon 85mm f1.8 and Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro are "ideal" focal lengths for portrait lens, the 50mm lenses come a tad short to be considered ideal.

It depends on what you want to do.... the 30mm Sigma and 35mm Nikon are near normal focal length lenses on APS-C, so much more versatile. The 50mm ones are indeed better suited for portrait stuff only.
