    Im going to be purchasing a 60D in the very near future and wondered what your comments would be regarding lenses for it.
    I thought the new(ish) Tamron 18-270 F/3.5-6.3 DiVC PZD, would be a lens for all situations.
    Or should I go down the multiple lenses route with a, say 18-70 and a 70 210/300.
    Any thoughts on the matter cannonites.

    My question to you is how long have you been doing photography and are you thinking of doing this as a career or just a hobby, also what type of photography are you specialising in ie, portrait, landscape,product,fashion,weddings.

    To give an accurate answer to your question we need more info as to what you want from photography.

    thank you and look forward to seeing your answer to these questions.

    A 270mm lens at f6.3 would limit you a lot,as said above it all depends on what you want to do but in any case the normal situation is, the more a lens will open the better but that also means the more expensive it is.

    Ive been intrested in Photography for 3 years now, my SX10 is a upgrade from a point"n"shoot.
    Im just a hobbist, who likes taking pictures, and I think Ive come to the limitations of my SX10.
    My main photography intrest would be, landscape - flowers - Steam Locos.
    I know very little about lenes apart from Cash = Quality, I was just taken with the thought of the one lens does all, but it seem to be that, that is not the case.
    Anyway thanks for the input, hope this was of help.

    Why not go for a 60d with a lens you can get some deals and I've seen some great photo's with the 18-55, Then you can get a larger lens.

    The it lens will cover landscapes and loco's (unless you are 3 fields awayGrin) but if you want to do flowers you'll need a macro lens really. If its just flowers then a 90mm-100mm is fine but when you start looking at insects, you'll need a longer one so as not to scare them and more important, not to cast shadows over them,plus you can isolate them from their background better.

    Enjoy your new camera
