otherwise, something between 24-35mm as a prime would be nice for you, and maybe an 85mm 1.8 prime would be a good option too.

but again, if you're used to a 50 prime, just stick with that.

Thanks for the recommendations. Just found out that not only is it the camera but it includes the 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens. Is this worth keeping? For sure I will be getting 50 1.4!
