Would it be a good idea to not buy a standard zoom and instead two decent primes? One from the shorter end and one more for the telephoto side?

Since im shooting on a cropped sensor, canon 60d, whats it like shooting with 100mm or the 135?

If you have a cropped sensor camera, then for portrait photography, you don't want to have 100mm or 135mm. Although both are excellent lenses; you will need far distance between your camera and the object to have the right portrait frame. Unless if your intention is to take photos in distance, then 135 is a good idea.

Based on my experience (I had 30D a while back ago); I recommend 50mm f/1.4. he best is, try different lenses at the store and choose the one that fits your photography style.

Good luck.
