Lens advice

I’m looking for some advice please……

I would like to buy a new lens for portrait work (without spending an insane amount of money)… I have the Nikon D80 with an 18 -135 mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.

I am looking at the 50 mm 1.4 or perhaps the 85 mm 1.8 – would really like the 85 mm 1.4 but I’m not allowed to spend that much money :-(

I don’t really know v. much about any of them, but was told that the 50 mm 1.4 was a really good affordable portrait lens, just wondering though if I am better off spending a little more for the 85 mm 1.8??? Certainly open to any other suggestions…
