Which 1.8 prime for group portraits?
2

I own the 85 f/1.8 S.  I very much like the 85 prime and the ability to use f/1.8, but it's too long a focal length for group portraits (4-5 people), especially if indoors.  So, I'm trying to figure out if I should get the 35 f/1.8 S or the 50 f/1.8 S for the group shot situations where the 85 is too long?

For context, I'm not a pro so this is just for family/friend gatherings where I'm designated the photographer to get a quality shot.
