You might also want to consider the Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro. Wide open it is a bit soft at the corners compared to other macro lenses but for the price, it's a real bargain. You will almost always use smaller apertures for macro shots anyway to gain more DOF.

I think the 50mm is a good focal length for portraits on a crop camera.
