Hi, this is my first post here and I'm very, very new to DSLR. Recently, I bought a Canon EOS 400d Kit II, which includes the 17-85mm lens.

My questions are:
  1. is it really necessary to get a filter? If so, which kind(s) and brand(s)?
  • what affordable(less than $1000) lens is good for portraits?

I'd really appreciate your kind advice. Thanks.
