Why not give the "plastic fantastic", the Canon 50mm f/1.8 II lens, a try. For around $75 it it is one of Canon's best kept secrets. Yes, it is cheaply built (hence the price), but is produces sharp images with nice bokeh:

Play with that lens and your new camera for awhile before dropping the big bucks on another lens. Good luck with your decision!
