    It really depends on what you like to shoot or think you would like to shoot. Gratz on the new camera.

    for portraits, the new 35mm f/1.4 should be pretty amazing

    what's your budget?

    50 is much better for portraiture on an APS-C sized sensor than the 35.

    If you have enough room to zoom with your feet.

    On a D7000 the apparent focal length of a 50 mm is 75 mm. The 35 mm has an apparent focal length of 52.5 mm.

    I would take a close look at the AF 35mm f/2D: AF NIKKOR 35mm f/2D from Nikon

    In what way? In my experience, the 50mm is much too long and you have to stand too far back to get reasonable field of view for anything but headshots. Sure, the tighter zoom CAN create a shallower DOF, but IMO that's not worth it if you have trouble just framing the shot how you want.

    I'll second the 35mm f/2 suggestion for something more budget-minded, although you'll want to stop down to f/2.8 to get a sharp image

    All of that being said, yes, the 50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4 is great for portrait shots provided you have the room to use it.

    Woops. Yes if you do have the room to move then I would go with the 50. Better would be an 85 1.4 if you had the room IMO.
