That would depend on many things. You might want to give us a bit more information on what your expectations are, what you plan on photographing, are you concerned with cost, etc?

Your question is a lot like asking "what is the best software for my computer?"

ohenry is completely right. This is impossible to answer without lots more info. How much money are you willing to spend. How much weight can you carry. What type of photography will do you? And lots more.

Hi- You have invested in an excellent camera. Do yourself a favor and put Canon lenses on this new Camera. If your money allows, put L lenses on it. If you can afford L lenses and don't put them on, you may wish that you had after buying something else. If you do buy Canon L lenses for this camera you will be amazed at the image quality. Good luck....Mike

The 50mm f1.8 is a very good lens for the money, and should work very well for portrates. It isn't the fastest focusing lens on the planet, but it isn't bad. After the 1.6x crop its 80mm, which many consider to be the ideal portrate lens focal length.

For landscapes you'll need something with a very low focal length to make up for the 1.6x magnification/crop of that camera. Personally I have the Canon 17-40 f4, but that is out of your price range. Maybe others can suggest something.
