Prime Portrait Lens

I have my 18-200 VR but now want to add a prime portrait lens. Constraints

a. Money
b. I'll only buy Nikon

c. This will be used exclusively for portrait (well it might not, but portrait is the only consideration when buying)
4. AF preferably

I'm trying to decide between

  • 35mm f2D

  • 50mm F1.4D

  • 85mm f1.8D

I'd appreciate views on the relative merits of each and anything I should look out for. These are to go on my D300.
