    I will go for the 50mm f/1.8 (Around $145 brand new with Hoya Filter) second hand will fetch around $125 with filter; considering that the lens is still under warranty

    28-105mm MKII 3.5-45 USM

    Good color, however you should stop down and use, good range for streets.

    Good for macro close focusing to .38m not alot but when used with Close-up filters (58mm size) the results are not bad.

    This used to be a $600++ lens new, but now u can get it on the buy and sell for $250.

    Auto focus is good and fast and silent cos it's USM. Metal mount lens too!
