Okay I'm using the term environment portraits very loosely as they are mainly shots of my kids/still lifes in our home/outside the home activities (i.e. auditoriums etc). I've checked out the kids/pictures sticky in the portrait section already so I'm just looking for any other suggestions.

I have a 60D and would love suggestions on lens(es) that are going to give decent results but not an L lens price. My pictures tends to be around 40mm range and higher at about a 2-5ft (1-3 metres) distance between and my 'subjects'.

I have a 18-55mm and 55-250mm already so my first thoughts were a 1.8 50mm.

(Mods if this belongs somewhere else, please let me know.)

Pretty sure this should be in the Canon section, but I guess it will be moved soon enough. :)

As far as your question goes, you've kind of answered it yourself. The 50 is cheap, sharp, fast. What more do you want? Sounds like the perfect lens for your needs :)
