The 40mm should do it for street photography.
What are the kit lenses?  I'm only aware of the 24-105mmL being offered as a kit lens in Canada and the USA, but it can be different depending on which country you are in.

in a studio the 24-105 is actually excellent since your will typically be shooting at f8 to f11 ish
at f8 this lens is really really sharp

also same deal with your 50mm stop it down there and shoot in a studio and its gonna be very very sharp

depending on your budget consider an 85mm either the canon f1.8 if you are on a budget  around $350 ish
or the sigma 85 f1.4 if you have more to spend around $800

but I would suggest getting some strobes first and using the 24-105 while you get the hang of it all

I recommend this setup

then look on ebay for a cheap backdrop setup

gets you started quite cheaply

24-105L in studio will be fine (as per wickidwombat) - just sort out the lighting and you'll be sweet  :)

I love the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4. It is so sharp it is ridiculous. A 35mm might be a nice wide studio lens as well. The 24-105mm is also a good starter.
