For my tractor show photo shoots, tired of carrying around a boatload of lenses. Ran across a smokin deal so I sanpped it up. I'll probably take this and a 50mm f1.8 to the shows...

Looking forward to the pics Jim. Good find. Anything you don't have to lug around is more room for flea market finds.:thumbs:

I bought an L lens and have had great success with it. Just a suggestion, instead of upgrading the body, check out an L lens and upgrade the body down the road.

Hey, it could be worse, you could have Nikons. I've been paying more for lenses than bodies since 1983. For quite some time I had two lenses that cost more than the truck(s) I was driving. Those were manual focus for film cameras though, so now they are paper weights.

18-135 is a nice range, though. Wide angle through short telephoto. As long as you don't need the extra speed of fixed focal-length lenses...and with digital you rarely do...zooms are the way to go. I just use an 18-105 most of the time now, and have a 100-300 for the rare occasion when I need more length. Also, I rarely shoot pictures anymore. I leave most of that to Mrs. Rev.
