Re: Upgrading to the 60D should I get body only or w/18-135 ?

My sister has the 55-250, and I have a 60D with 18-135. The 18-135 is much faster-focusing, better-handling, and overall more fun to use. You lose half the reach, of course, but the image stabilization is much better: the finder image jumps around less. Plus, the build is much better.

However, if you don't miss the image stabilization on the wide end (and you seem to need the speed of your Sigma), and you don't mind the 55-250 for sports, then go ahead and continue to use those lenses on your 60D.
