60D is a very nice camera!
I have both the 40D and the 50D!! the 60D has a few neat features that mine dont... In the past the ##D lineup has been my favourite balance of hoby-pro cameras.. Started with the 20D myself... but Personally the 60D is not something i see in my future.. Canon wants to get people like myself to move up to the 7D .. Ugh what a price to pay!
best features of the ##D line (10,20,30,40,50, and the 60D).. Fully Manual with 2 dials.
Top one for shutter speed.. And the big one for aperture.
Knowing how to use all of the functions, is over raited.
Knowing the physics of light and camera work is way more valuable.
... Proof: the Most expensive cameras do the least amount of "tricks."
Video is cool but... 80% of the modes on that dial are useless in my opinion.
Oh but anywas... Best lense for ya..
Maybe a low range zoom... 30 or 50 to 100 (any or much longer just go prime)
Well, i take that back, 70/80-300 eh they are ok lenses
50mm F/1.8! Great lens for the price.. dirt cheap! Super light.
One of the Cheapest lense canon makes and the quality really isnt all that bad.
If you want to spend some dough... On a Long lens... get An older prime L series. (Not IS) Quality is noticeably sharper than the zoom lenses!
Ex: "400mm L" is smaller lighter faster and noticeably sharper than the "100-400mm L IS"
Yet they are of similar price..
