Hi all...this looks like a great site and I'm looking forward to learning lots here .
I have decided to purchase a 60d over a T3i and Nikon D5100, just felt better in my hand than the other two. My question is regarding the lenses...I can either get a kit with an 18-200 or I can get a body with a 17-85 for nearly the same price. I am planning to pick up a 50mm as well. I'll be going to Europe next summer and hope to pick up a Tamron 70-300 or something similar. In the meantime, I'm mainly taking pictures of my kids. I like close-up work a lot as well.
What would you all suggest? TIA!
