Can you use this lens for portraits?

A little easier to do so when shooting on a crop body, but if you don't mind doing wide-angle environmental portraits (lots of background), then yes, you can.

Yeah, backgrounds are unavoidable with portraits....but that can also be a good thing. Just depends on how you want to convey your photo to others.

Same can be done regarding portraits. Just depends on how you would like to envisage something...
