    Hi, I'm looking forward to getting my hands on my first DSLR Canon EOS 550D, and I intend on focusing on portrait photography. I found a very interesting 50mm f/1.8 lens for only $100, so I thought I'd buy it instead of the standard 18-55mm lens. I was told by someone that the lens won't work unless I use an adaptor. I couldn't find any information on the web (or maybe I wasn't searching hard enough), and I was hoping I could get some of your expertice on this matter. Thanks a lot.

    @athena - it will work if it is a Canon 50mm.
