Would this lens work well on my camera, rebel T1i?

Yes it will. The Canon APS-C sensor has a 1.6X "crop factor", which makes this lens effectively a 64mm f/2.8 short telephoto on your camera. The reviews are good on the lens. It would make a great portrait lens, and the f/2.8 aperture will give you a nice blurred background. The price is right. The rest is up to you.

Wow, not only did I order that lens, but a great case also. The b&h app posts daily "deals", and there is a smallish $70 backpack on there now for $29. I looked on Amazon and its $84. Wasn't looking for that but decide to snap it up.
