Thanks for the help everyone! I used to own an xsi but had to sell it. I still consider myself a newbie to dslr's though. Was contemplating the t4i but after a bit of research on the net and then playing with the 60d at best buy...the 60d just felt better compared to the rebels. That 50mm f1.8 lens is nice...I like it and will order it also. What other lens should I pick up? Was gonna get the kit with the 18-200mm lens but not anymore. Seems like the 18-135mm is a better choice so I might go with that. Or I'll just pick up the body only and get whatever lens you all recommend. I have about $1500 to start off with.My suggestion, go to the Canon Loyalty program. A refurbished 60D body is $640+tax...and they also let you take 20% off one of their refurb lenses (except L glass). You could use that on one of the 50mm lenses (f/1.8 or f/1.4), or the 100mm Macro if you'd want that. The 18-135 can be had for $250ish on Ebay or Craigslist, usually a decent amount of people selling them out of their kit. You could probably get the 60D, 18-135, 50 f/1,8 and the macro all for your $1500 price point.
