Re: New dad seeking advice on lenses.

If your budget permits I'd try the new 15-85mm lens or even the 18-135mm lens.

The 50mm f1.4 is a good but not great lens in all cases. It is a good non-flash lens but I'd think long and hard about the 85mm f1.8 instead and maybe even suggest you check out the 17-55mm f2.8 zoom and put the extra lens on hold for a while. The T1i body is pretty good at high ISO so you may well find that f2.8 is sufficient for most of your uses.

There is no single good answer to your start-up kit. It mostly depends on what pictures you take and under what circumstances. Check out the 17-55mm f2.8 as it is one of Canon's best non L lenses. It's about the cost of the two lens kit you've suggested and it truly is a nice lens.
