Heads up, the 24mm lens is APS-C while the other three are full frame.

You can use full frame lenses on aps-c but not vice versa.

OK, the easy part is that it will fit her camera without an adapter. You can use EF lenses on both EF and EF-S bodies, but you can only use EF-S lenses on EF-S bodies.

For your other question, that's a bit harder to discern. Does she even want a prime lens? They're great for that one focal length, but the downside is that they're only that one focal length. You have to move closer or further away from the subject to frame the shot correctly. Or sometimes you just have to accept that you're going to miss the shot (which is what I usually resort to).

Rough estimate: the 24mm lens would be for landscape (sort of), general street photography, pictures of people that includes most of their body, groups of people, indoors, etc.
The 40mm would be tighter, more of a "waist up" photography for people, slightly zoomed-in street photography, slightly less useful indoors, etc.
The 50mm would be like the 40mm, just a little more so in each way.
The 85mm (which is fantastic, by the way) is for sports (indoor), fast action, indoor events like concerts, and portrait photography. The focal length makes people's facial features more pleasing, and it will produce lots of bokeh (the blurry background) that makes professional photographer's pictures really pop.
The 100-400 is for rich people to stare at birds all day.

Since you already have the 100mm macro, I'd say the 24mm would probably be the best shot? It's a far more common focal length for the camera type that you have than the 40mm, and it is sort of the same type of lens as the 40mm but made for crop body cameras (which you have). Basically the sensor in your camera is smaller than a "full frame" (EF) camera, and so the 40mm on a full frame would perform very similarly to the 24mm on the body that you have.

Anecdotally, I had the 50mm on a crop body years ago and hated it. It didn't fit my shooting style at all and so I sold it after 6 months or so. But I LOOOOOOOVE my 22mm prime. That's just my experience, though, so take it for what it's worth.

Nice deal. Handily beats lowest camel prices on Amazon. 24mm is $127 on camel, for example.

The accessories are really not worth much and not something I'd pay for, but I'll take 'em.

If you dont care about the accessories (probably very poorly made anyway) the 24mm is the same price at b&h plus 4% back.

Wow that's a great deal on the 85 1.8. Wasn't looking for anything longer than a 50 on APS-C but might bite because of the price.

No, the lens sticks too far into the body and would bottom out, hence the different mounting (red dot vs white square).

yeah now I have both the EF 50 STM and the 85 1.8. Haha maybe I don't need the 50 STM anymore on APS-C, but it's under $100 resale value, so could just keep it,

The 50mm is an EF lens, the 24 is EF-S (the-S is the non full frame compatible marker)

Ok, I get it. You are saying EF is compatible with aps-c and FF but EF-S is only compatible with APS-C.
