    Bought this main purpose is for taking photo for my new born baby. But the kit lens not good enough.
    Thanks for advice.

    If I am you, I would get the 580ex speedlight. Bounce the flash, no problem to baby's eyes. 580ex + 30d + kit lens is good enough for baby photo. With 50mm, indoor, you have to use wide aperture. The depth of field will be too small. Part of the baby's body will be blurred. And at 50mm, you will have to stand a few feet away from the baby to get a full body shot.

    Some people very scared of using flash on a baby so the best choice is a fast prime lens either a 50/1.8, 50/1.4, 35/2 or sigma 30/1.4. All these fast primes are easy to use because of the fast shutter speed it allows you to shoot indoors at low light condition.

    Yesterday went to Sim Lim to look for this. Because of AP bad service(everybody is ignoring me), so i went to another shop (Forgotten the name), they not selling the EF 50mm f/1.8 II only EF 50mm f/1.4 USM which cost $360.

    Anybody know where can buy the EF 50mm f/1.8?

    He let me try for the EF-S 17-85 IS, like this lens very much. but expensive. $1080.
    Try sigma 17-70 less expensive @$600.00 Interms of distortion, CA it is better than 17-85 IS and you can use aperature 2.8 at 17-20mm.
