Hey what's up guys, I'm looking into purchasing a Canon 60D for my first DSLR. I have basic knowledge about DSLR's and prefer the 60D over the Rebels because of the ability to shoot 1080p. I have used the 60D in person as a close friend of mine owns one, he chose it over the Sony NEX-VG10 (camcorder) because of price and versatility. I by no means expect to get the plethora of options and video quality out of the Canon 60D as the Sony, but for the price it seems like a better deal. So I was wondering what type of lens might a first time DSLR buyer choose. As of now I'm leaning towards the Canon EF-S 18-200mm lens. I'm aware that the quality of the photo may be sacrificed but since I'm new to this whole thing I would prefer to own a lens that has such a wide range (from wide angle to telephoto). Also does anyone have a good recommendation as far as a tripod? Thanks.
