DA 35 f/2.4
DA 35 f/2.8 macro
Sigma 30mm f/1.4

on crop that would be my recommendation. 35mm on crop is equivalent to ~50mm on full frame (in terms of angle of view).

That should net you mid body portraits and both are light weight.

DFA 24-70 f/2.8 is a bigger full frame lens totally different from anything you've encountered thus far (in your lens lineup). Actually on crop it would give you some nice focal lengths for portraity stuff and would give you a nice entry into full frame if you should ever decide to go that route with Pentax.

Though personally I'd probably opt for a 30 or 35mm prime for crop. But this is a very personal decision -- what focal lengths you like really do seriously matter in your lens selection.

I'd slap that 18-55mm on your camera and go through the focal lengths to find the one(s) you value the most, then go from there.
