Thanks for all your responses. In summary you guys are right my friend has just started in photography and knows very little, so I am extremely grateful for your help.

I am still undecided, I have also been told to maybe look at sigma 10-20mm F3.5, does any one have any experience with this lense?

I have a bunch of shots (including portraits) I've taken with the 10-20 on my Flickr stream.

Its certainly not my first choice for portraits, but it can do the trick in a pinch, provided you account for the distortion going that wide is going to cause if you even go a hair out of dead center - properly framed orientation. That said, I'd never recommend it *for* portraiture. You'd do better with something longer for that. For landscapes, I have no complaints at all.

Here are a few examples I've done of both portraits and landscapes with mine.
