On a crop camera 50mm is just about long enough to be a good portrait length. On a full frame camera its a bit wide but still somewhat usable. The 85 f1.8 has better image quality wide open much better build quality and probably a better autofocus. So its a much better choice as a portrait lens for about the same price.
