Re: best budget lens for crop sensor?

Depending on your style, the 50mm could be a great standard walk-about lens. I LOVE it on crop sensors.

The most value to you though would be the 24mm. While not quite a wide-angle on a crop sensor, it's at the wider end and enough of a difference to the 50mm to warrant changing the lens for a specific situation.
24, 50, 100mm might be nice prime lengths with similar jumps in FOV.
