Did you get the kit with the 18-55? If so, your second lens should be the 55-250. The 50mm STM is a great lens, but of limited usefulness on a crop sensor. A more useful prime is the 24mm ef-s STM.

But his stated intention is "social portrait photography -- individual or double", so a 50mm would work better for that purpose.

BUT ... I think he should try it first with his 18-55 on the 50 setting to be sure that is the FL he wants before committing money to another lens.

AND ... he may find he wants an even longer lens for "head" shots, and thus he could consider the 85mm.

But I certainly agree with you that the 55-200 is useful for extending his "tele" zoom range.
