She's leaning toward a Canon T2i or T3i body so I need to suggest a lens. So I'd love to hear suggestions on a new or used 2.8F zoom and prime of any brand. I'm not sure which she wants first, zoom or prime. If it's a prime IMO it should be a 24mm, 28mm (Canon) or 30mm (Sigma). As 50mm on a crop sensor is too zoomed for indoor.

It seems in my research that Tamron is beating Sigma in the off brand game. Higher build consistency.
