Quick history...A few months ago I purchased a T3i, returned it, then a 60D, returned it as well. Bottom line, I decided I didn't want to get into credit card debt for a camera. I've now saved up enough for a used body for around $600 and I have found one locally. Problem is, I need to save a bit more for a lens.
Would it be silly to just go and buy a 50mm until I can afford better glass? Around $100 is all I can spare right now anyway.
I will primarily be taking pictures of my kids/family, travel and architecture if that info helps.
