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.

Both Tamron and Sigma make good lens but they vary so look at the lens comparison sites.  Sigma makes a good 17-50 2.8 zoom.    For the best price on a T3i or T2i (550D) look at the "market price watch" section on this site
