Re: Purchase: 60D or 7D + Lenses?

Thanks for your thoughts, much more insightful than most stores...

So the general consensus is that superzoom lenses aren't necessarily the best choice.  You've spoken of poorer quality with the superzoom lenses, could someone elaborate on 'poorer quality' is that just under low light, not as crisp? more noise?

I've listed a few lenses below and their various prices in AUD, am I right in saying all of them have the same max aperture of 3.5 whilst unzoomed?  If you were looking for a combination of value for money and quality out of these what would be a good choice?

Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM - $619.00

Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS - $326.36

Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS - $439.22

Tamron AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD - $479.62

Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM - $479.62
