Re: New Dad Indoor Setup?

Do you have a flash?

If not, the faster the lens, the better. You'll want to capture those cute spontaneous moments and it often occurs in poor light conditions.  I use my 50 1.8 most of the time.

Don't worry about IS. Yeah, it is great for camera shake at slower shutter speeds, but that won't matter when a baby is moving all over. You'll need a faster shutter speed or flash.

As someone else mentioned, a wide angle or even a fish eye can be really fun. I have enjoyed taking different shots with a wide angle. Just adds a different and fun look to standard kid photos.
