85 will probably be too long on a crop body. It is great on my FF but too long on my crop for portraits. Also be advised that the DOF with these lenses wide open is really rather shallow and you are likely to get the shutter speed you need, but it's very easy to get one eye out of focus unless photographing the subject head on.
