    You donít need a fast lens for most of the landscape shots, it would be nice to use the best lens (as in lens quality) if you can afford it.

    can you kindly explain this further, sorry for my ignorance

    basically when shooting landscape, use a smaller aperture so that all things in the frame will be sharp, so no point having a lens with f2.8 of even f4, as u will probably be using f8 or smaller when u take the shot.
    he was refering to lens with big apertures(smaller f-number) when he said "fast" lens.

    If you are budget constrained, get the EF 50mm f1.8 II. It's a reasonable lens with good quality and speed for indoor shots.

    When you mean flash, is it built-in flash or not?
    I would recommend getting the 550ex and omni-bounce for nice (in most cases) indoor shoots.
    Eventually it will still depends on the lighting conditions and what is required.

    say if my budget is not that constrain, will the EF 85mm f/1.8 USM be a good choice?

    i meant external flash, was thinking of the 580EX? sorry bout not mentioning this earlier..
