A new camera! And a lens?

I am finally going to upgrade from my current digital camera, a Fuji FinePix 5000s, purchased in 2003.

I am going to purchase a Canon 60D - a beautiful camera in my mind...

The trouble is, a camera like this usually doesn't come with a lens, or if it does, it is a cruddy "kit"  lens...
So I have done some research, using the vast knowledge that my brother holds in his noggin. He recommended the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens...This is NOT cheap. It actually costs a hundred or so dollars MORE than the camera....BUT, the images it makes are stunning!

BUT - I haven't put the purchase through. I was wondering - is there any chance that YOU have some input?


  1. ive always wanted a dslr w/ vid capabilites but DO IT

  2. looks nice, i dont know alot about this kind of stuff :O

  3. I must have that camera...sooo clean.

  4. no input sadly, but I hope which ever you do choose works well for you.

  5. It all depends on how serious u are about photography i guess, if you love it go for it

  6. Couldn't help you with this. I don't know the first thing about cameras.

  7. Looks like a sweet camera man.

  8. I have a Nikon D40, I've been looking to upgrade but I don't think I do enough picture taking to warrant my upgrade.

    I do hope you enjoy your new toy! It looks fabulous!

    And keep us updated! I'd love some unboxing pictures :)
