    I would say the 50mm would be best. It seems like most of the photographers on this forum that shoot portraits use a 50mm 1.8 lens

    dont think the 50mm will autofocus on your camera if that helps.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that the 50mm is effectively a 75mm on your crop sensor. The 35mm would be 52.5mm.
