Re: Portrait lens 50mm 1.8g or 85mm 1.8g

Have you looked at the Nikkor 60mm macro? Two birds with one stone if you're looking to also get a macro lens at some point. Alternatively, the Tamron 90mm macro is known as a good portrait lens too. Depending on what FL you want.

The 50 1.8 and 85 1.8 are both nice and fast lenses had at low prices, but neither are really ideal for portraits, IMO. Although the 85 1.8 is admittedly better than the 50mm.
