Anything between 50 to 150mm; it depends on the type of portrait you are looking after. Even a wide angle can be used to portrait and the same applies to a 200mm lens. Hope I did help...

If you are shooting traditional portraiture, the 70LTD is gorgeous.

The cheapest way is to try a manual focussing 50mm or 55mm like the K55/m50/A50.
From your experiŽnce with that lens you can decide wether you are more a environmental
portrait shooter and buy a FA35mm or a DA35mm or even a 28mm, or you like the VOF of a 70/77/85 mm better.
