With these two fairly inexpensive items you can get high-quality pictures. The f1.8 lens gives you that dreamy bokeh (dreamlike blurring background behind the subject) and a natural looking image for portrait style shots. The lens has a small profile so its great for the run and gun photographer as well. Add the tripod to the mix and you can get stunning landscapes with sharp photos eliminating all camera shake.
