One bad thing abt the lens is the noise while AF-ing though. Quite a noisy focus there! Lol! But since you do MF, should be ok.
    Okies. Thinking seriously of getting the 50mm f/1.8. Plus a dry cabinet.
    Canon EOS 550D. 18-55mm. 50mm f/1.8 II.

    Depends on the distance between you and your subject. Lens-wise the 85mm f/1.8 is more expensive but also more solidly built and the IQ is somewhat better than the 50mm f/1.8.
