The Canon EF-S 60mm lens has great reviews. The thing I liked about the reviews was it seemed to be popular not just macro, but also portrait.
The price isn’t really all that bad considering what you get… right now Amazon is selling it for $429.00 + Free Shipping. Buy.com is a little less at $409.00 + Free Shipping. Dell is selling it for $419.00 + Free Shipping as well.

What a great price, today on Amazon it is $148.95. Digital cameras seem to be really coming down on price lately. The Kodak Easy Share is the camera my mom uses, and she loves it. Takes good action shots, and has a 5x zoom which is good. It is small and compact easily fits in a pocket or purse.
