lenses! questions!

So I got myself a Canon T1i a couple months ago and I want to get a couple lenses. I am on a budget so I'm just wondering what brands are comparable to the Canon quality? Is Tamron any good? Or should I just save up and stick with Canon lenses? (I know IS is a big deal)

Get the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, aka "Nifty Fifty." Now. It's $90 new, and it's pretty basic, but still awesome.

Re: lenses! questions!

yeah i was looking at that one, good for some of what i will be doing (portraits). is it worth it to save a little longer for the 50mm f/1.4? or is f/1.8 good enough? i always seem to find myself in low-light situations so that's the primary need i have right now.

Re: lenses! questions!

I need a new one of those.

Actually, I need an EF-85mm f/1.8 USM, since I've got a full-frame sensor.
