    Then I could recommend you CANON EF 50MM F/1.8 II. Excellent optics on a budget. A highly rated lens

    Excellent optics on a budget. A highly rated lens

    Lightweight and affordable, this sharp lens with a fast f/1.8 aperture is an excellent first lens for those who prefer a fixed focal length, and makes an excellent addition to any photographer’s system for available-light shooting. A traditional Gauss-type optical design ensures sharp performance even when wide open, and it focuses as close as 18 inches (0.45m).

    This is the lightest EF lens of all at a mere 130g. Compact and high-performance, standard lens. Its Gaussian optics provide sharp delineation from near to far focusing distances. The colour balance is excellent for a standard lens
