Well, higher quality glass will have lower aperatures which will allow for more light to enter the lens. If you're looking at a nice wide, I keep hearing good things about the Canon 28 f1.8 or an equivalent like the Sigma EX 28mm f1.8 for wide primes.
In terms of flashes, a cheap alternative to get used to using a flash would be a YongNuo 460 (I believe R31ncarnat3d uses them) -- I'm waiting on mine to show up to give it a shot.
Budget kind of matters, so if the Canon 28mm F1.8 is out, the Sigma EX is ~$100 cheaper new..Edited by MistaBernie - 2/15/11 at 2:12pm
