Another vote for the EFS 17-55. This is a great lens, you will find reasons NOT to move to FF because of the 17-55.

this is a true statement. That 17-55 can take handheld shots at night that I didn't think possible.

When I saw the title of the OP It piqued my interest.
My first SLR was a Canon FX. I thought that's what you were talking about. It was introduced in 1964 and also introduced the FL line of lenses, later succeeded by the FD line and later still by the EF lenses of today. The FX had an external CDS meter (mounted on the left side of the camera) and my model came with a 50mm f/1.2 lens. I bought it from a captain used and there was no manual. The memory that this brings back is that I spent days and days trying to figure it out. At this point I knew nothing, so this memory makes me sympathize with those "newbies" that ask very fundamental questions. We were all at that point sometime in our past.


Film: Leica M-4, Elan 7E, Rolleiflex 2.8f, Pentax 645 -- Digital: Canon Pro-1, EOS 5D Mk III
EOS Lenses: Sigma 24-70 f2.8 EX - Canon EF 17-40 f4.0L - Canon EF 24-105 f4.0L - Canon EF 35 f1.4L USM - Canon EF100-400 f4.5-5.6L IS USM - Canon EF100 f2.8 Macro - Other stuff: MR 14EX - 430EX - 580EXII - ST-E2 - TC1.4x - TC-80N3

Actually, I was addressing only the bit where you said the 5D shoots 10 images per second (you didn't appear sure of that). :)

I can certainly see how the tilt screen would come in handy. The autofocus and 100% viewfinder of the 7D are more useful to me than a tilt screen would be, but that sort of thing is highly personal.

It's pretty darned cool that the camera which suits your needs best is actually less expensive than the alternatives! :-)

Yea.. well, i wont lie, i been in the store and one thing i miss on my 60D is the weight from the 7D.
I've had way to many camers with no tilt-screen, and although it's not used much at the time, i'd probably bang my head in a wall when the day comes when i need it (concert, low angle shots etc). Well, we can't always have the best of both worlds.. besides, children go hungry and starve to death.. and i whine about about weight in my camera. :o

+100

I bought my first 5D in 2006 when they have sale with the intention, I will "upgrade" myself to FF world.
Today, 2013 Im still using my crop body coz of the 17-55 2.8 IS, even though I was able to sell all of my EF-S lenses, but cant sell my 17-55 and still using crop body.
YES IT IS THAT GOOD.
