Re: First non-kit lens for a young photographer.

Seems like quite a bit of kit for a nine year old.

I would think that what she already has could keep her busy for a long time. Sometimes riches in hardware aren't the best answer for learning.

Since she has two zooms, I'd get a prime. The 25 f1.8 is inexpensive. The 20mm f1.7 is small and well-loved. I also like the suggestion to ask her what she wants help her understand what each lens offers.
