Thanks Brenda and Chad. Chad, yes it does look a little off, but that hill in front throws ya. I even had to look a few times while taking the pic. Anyhow, I guess I should have asked are they better, worse or about the same as my regular output? Reason I ask is back a few weeks ago I was looking for a cheap camera for timelapse and a second body, also to prove to myself it's not always about the gear. When I went out this weekend I tried to just use my new/used XSi for photos. I hiked with it and the 18-135 kit lens and mainly shot with that combo. I came home and took the cards from out of the 60D and XSi, processed the pics and pulled my favorites. I totally forgot what camera I took what pics with, so went back and looked over the info on them and realized all my favs were from the XSi. Anyhow, just wanted to know what people thought of them and if they thought they turned out as good as I thought they did for using a "cheap" combo.

P.S. I like the first and last shot. The second was just a cool place and pretty indifferent about the 3rd

Didn't even realize you were not using the 60D and didn't even think twice about it so I think that answers your question.

By the way, I see you what you mean about the hill. I s only using my phone. Relooking at the shots, the first is my favorite. Colors are vibrant.

I read somewhere that the 55-250 STM wasn't available until mid october but then someone said, it's out now. I checked Amazon and sure enough, you can order one now for Thursday delivery.

Yep seems to be out. Mag factor is slightly less than the non-STM. Canon seems to be banging these STM lenses out of the park, will be interested to see how it performs.

Has anyone else kind of questioned the ergonomics of putting a heavy lens on your 60D or is it just me?

For some odd reason, I swear dumbbells and weight machines put less stress on my joints (arm) than my camera does :shock:

What is "good form" (if that exists in the camera world) when utilizing a DSLR?

I've found guides on how to loosely do it, but nothing really detailed on how to prevent RSI or acute injuries in the wrist or elbow (famous photog's elbow eh?). Focusing on structure and function (anatomy), it's painful to read people up in the other sub-forums talking about how their "walkaround" kit is a 5D3 with 70-200 2.8, 24-70 2.8 and 16-35 for a trip to Disneyworld..... Kind of makes you think about what you're doing to your body long term, yet people keep recommending progressively heavier lenses to those just starting out :confused:

Oh, and side thought - I always did find it odd that some people buy a 5D3 and 70-200 2.8 (example) to take static shots of a car.... not that there's anything wrong with that, it just seems like a healthy amount of overkill with a side of "just to make sure" :lol:

Yeah. Idk how some people choose the 70-200mm as a walk-around unless it's a relatively short trip.

I've gotten comfortable with it by holding it by the center of the lens when not shooting and alternate between hands.

I've got an old L-bracket that I throw on mine occasionally. It adds a tiny bit of weight but it makes it easy to trade off your grip from your right hand to your left. Kind of looks cool, too... :cool:

The weight doesn't bother me. The gawking, when I pull it out, does :)

Someone needs to hit the weight room. That gear is not that heavy.

I'm happy to report that I installed Lightroom 5 and downloaded the 5.2 version with no issues whatsoever.

I was glad my Lightroom 4 catalog was automatically added to Lightroom 5. I thought it "should" work that way but I had seen so many questions about how to get Lightroom 4 files into Lightroom 5, I wondered. Perhaps if someone is using a Lightroom 4 version, buys Lightroom 5 that is a full version, not an upgrade, that might cause the problem. I suspect something else, however, as I can't imagine buying a full version when an upgrade would work well. ;)
