I have a Canon 60D that I purchased in December. I bought the camera body only since I had a decent collection of EF lenses from my Elan IIe setup. My primary lense was a Sigma 18-135 3.5. The motor on it has crapped out and the camera will not recognize the connection to the lense anymore, which even takes away the ability to manually focus the lense.
I have my eye set on a couple of different pieces of glass to cover the low to medium ranges. Tamron has the 8-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD which looks to be a decent lense based on reviews. The range is a bit more spread out but it would be nice to have one lense to cover that broad a range as long as the picture quality doesn't get sacrificed. Sigma also has some lenses that are comparable.
Anyone here into photography (amateur like me or professionally) that can recommend something decent without breaking the bank? I don;t need a superfast lense, but something in the 3.5-5.6 range is good. Maybe as low as 2.8 if I can get a zoom that fast.
