any comparation photos?
In all honesty, I would personally own all three of those lenses. But, if you had just one to choose from, I'd probably go with the 35mm. With your camera's crop factor, it'll be close to a full frame's 50mm "normal," with no telephoto happening, and the É1.4 will still give you plenty of control over DOF. Both the 50mm and 85mm will be more on the telephoto side and thus might not be quite as usable, especially if you find yourself shooting indoors a lot.
