Re: my budget

For under $1000, this is a good kit, but I'd opt for an ordinary kit zoom over the 50mm for greater flexibility.   The 35mm will be your go-to lens for indoors and times you need a faster lens, but I'm not sure the 50mm is also essential.   It's the traditional standard lens, but zooms are included with consumer dslrs because they're so broadly useful.   A standard zoom is good for outdoors, family vacations, and any other time you need flexibility more than low light ability.   Serious photographers won't be happy with the image quality, but you're a beginner shooting family snapshots.  Modern kit zooms are plenty good enough for that.   Combined with a faster lens for low light situations, like that 35mm, you'll be able to take nice pictures of almost anything.
