my daughter and a lens question

Hi all,

I consider this picture of my daughter, taken on Halloween day in the fall leaves, a very lucky capture. Of course, I'm thrilled to have it. She turns six next week and this will be a lovely memory of her fives.

I took the picture on my K-x with the Pentax M 135mm 3.5, and I really like the results I get with that lens. But I find it a little long for portraits of the kids. I also have the A 50mm 1.7, a little short for the same purpose. Perhaps this is all sounding too picky, but I'm wondering if there's a comparable lens (comparable in quality and price - I was amazed by the low cost of those two lenses) that falls between the other two in focal length?

As always, thanks for any and all suggestions.

Andrew
