Traded the 16-35mm f/2.8L for a 24-105mm f/4L, a 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5, and $550 cash.
I loved the 16-35, but the low range won't do any justice when it's my main [workhorse] lens (I'm going to Europe and I'm only allowed to take 1 lens + the 40mm pancake). The 24-105 should do better, the f/4 may be a bit high, but for me, its a better deal. The 10-22 also should complement my APS-C on the 70D better. And cash is cash, lol.

Mind if I join?

I've got a Canon 60D and my most used lens is my 60mm f/2.8, which I like to use to take pictures of my bugs and inanimate objects.

That's what I am leary about as most are used and you don't know what your getting.

In addition to my Canon Power Shot A590 P&S, I've just ordered a used Canon Digital Rebel T2i and a Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom to go with it. The prices finally came down low enough for me to afford these. I'll probably have to get a memory card and a carrying case for it too. Can't wait until it gets here.

You are late to the game, lol.
It is a nice camera, a lot of learning though, if you want to impress others.
Mine is the kiss X4, the T2i japanese version, bought it before the T2i appeared in the US.

Know how to play with the light, is the fundamental, this apply to any dslr.

Late? How so? I've had a Canon for awhile now albeit a P&S in 2007. I've been wanting a DSLR for some time now, but didn't have the funds available. Now I do and decided to get a used kit to save some $$$. Should get it mid next week .

I've been a Nikon fan since the mid '70s and have an old F2 film camera (doesn't work now) . I'm going with Canon as there is a whole lot more third party software to work with Canon than with Nikon. I'm planning on doing a full spectrum mod by removing the IR blocking filters over the sensor. Then I can do IR and astronomy photography. I'll just put an equivalent UV/IR blocking filter on when I do normal light photography. I still like Nikon, but they're more spendy and I don't see any advantage over Canon. I'm a bang for the buck kind of guy and Canon is the better value for what I want to do IMHO.
