Re: New dad seeking advice on lenses.

Best way to go is to get a zoom that is good in low light.

28-75/2.8 Tamron
24-70/2.8 HSM Sigma
or
17-50/2.8 VR Tamron
or 18-55/2.8 Canon

This may be more money , but you will need just one lens.

If you looking for long zoom
look at:

50-150/2.8 Sigma
70-200/2.8 Sigma
70-200/2.8 IS canon ( very good and high priced)

For a Prime 30mm/1.4 Sigma will work the best
50mm/1.4 is good as well but too long byitself.
I'd say a combo of 30mm/1.4 and 85mm/1.8 is a good prime combo for a Rebel.

Also get some flash canon or Sigma or SunPak does not metter and Gary Fong Defuser, you will love it.

Shop at Adorma or B&H as they alow returns and that will let you test the lenses well. And they have best prices and free shipping alot of times.
