Inexpensive, lightweight, nice optics for the cost.
Not sure how robust the lens is going to be, but for the price it can always be replaced.
The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II is an excellent lightweight general lens to pop in the bag, great for low light level shots and interiors etc and for the price you cannot complain. I wish Canon could do other lenses at a nice inexpensive price :-))
Shop around for the best price available, it can vary quite a bit.
