    I have no lens on offer, but I think you need a more direct approach to getting a new lens.
    first start off with working out what you want the lens to do - portrates, insects, sports etc-- since then people can direct you to a lens that will help you get the shots you want.

    Well, for the price you can't really beat the 50mm 1.8. However, I would say if you were to be looking for a great portrait lens there is also the 85mm 1.8 (I'm thinking it's around 300 dollars). There are others of course as well, if you want to shoot indoors at all, and you don't have the kit lens you may want to look at getting something a little wider as with the crop body even the 50 will be pretty unusuable for that kind of situation.
