Re: My first experience with the EOS 60D

The 17-55 f2.8 lens was somewhat dissapointing. It did not feel as solid as my old Sigma 18-50 f2.8 (non macro). IS was useless, as I was shooting people, who could not stand still (that si why I do not feel the need for IS lenses). I was very surprised that my old Sigma 18-50 was equally sharp wide open at f2.8 (at least in the centre of the frame). I expected that the 18 MP sensor will show some blurred image from the oldes constant f2.8 zoom when wide opened and compared to the 17-55 from Canon.

Not really a surprise for me - especially the old Sigma 18-50 is a very good lense also with F2.8. I use it on both 400D and 50D and one can see that it is really able to make use of the 15 MPixel of the newer sensor. But good to hear that the lense also makes sense on the 60D sensor.
