Would an 85mm f/1.8g prime work well on a DX body (D5300)?

Re: I prefer a 50mm on a DX for that purpose

Actually since he is considering the 50mm f/1.8 there is no need to do conversions. Setting his kit lens to 50mm will allow him to see what the 50mm prime would look like on his DX camera. That way he can get a feel for the framing possibilities and perspective of that focal length.
