I agree, there is no bigger bang for your buck than Canon 50mm 1.8

Agree, that's like 4-5 primes in one.

I concur. Picked it up today from Amazon for $110 and ever since I started using it I have been amazed.

18-55 IS
55-250 IS
50 f/1.8 or 40 "pancake".

All should serve you very well, giving decent pictures.
Total cost of ALL FOUR lenses is a lot less than £500.

Some lens mentioned in this thread cost £500 alone!!!
Some even more so.


Fuji XE1 ~ XF18 ~ XF27 ~ XF60 ~ XC50-230

strictly on a value per dollar (as opposed to "most valuable" lenses):

Canon EF 35mm f/2 (arc-form, non-USM)
Canon EF 135mm f/2.8 SF
Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM


honorable mentions:
Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC

40 f/2.8 is stellar for the price.

Outside of that; 50 f/1.2. It allowed me to sell all my other standard-range lenses and still be confident I can get the shot; as well as ridiculous low light ability and creative capabilities.

Ahh, I see. At any price / value?

Still 40mm stm, Best street lens on 6D, from dawn 'til dark.
24L II, wide angle, wide open. Low light monster even stopped down to f2.0 when paired with the 6D's noise performance.
100L, it opened up a whole world of handheld macro shots and street candids.
