Nikon D60 and the two lenses that came with the kit.

Polarized lenses and extra batteries and a Tripod that never leaves the Jeep unless I'm using it :-)

Adobe Lightroom is what I use to organize all the pics.

Well, I had this shot on the internet already so I'll share it here. The EOS 7D focuses pretty quick...

Hi Yessamskates
Until you hear from the owners of that lens, let me chip in.
The Canon 50mm f1.8 is a relatively inexpensive lens, and it's quite sharp and fast.
On a non-full frame camera (including the Rebel, 20D-50D and 7D) this lens will perform more like an 80mm f/1.8. This is seen as the ideal format for portrait photography. And since it is a 'prime' lens (not a zoom), everyone thinks it must be super sharp and better than zoom lenses.
This is not necessarily true. Today's zoom lenses, especially those optimized for digital photography, are very good and can be better than a prime.
Also, zoom lenses offer you more versatility. You don't have to move back and forth and change lenses (introducing dust) as much. 'Fast' lenses are great if you really do low-light photography, but I think they are overrated. If you had an f/2.8 lens, and wanted the same shutter speed, you could just increase your ISO sensitivity 1,3 stops. Today's DSLR cameras are so good they can cope with that easily.

So the question is, what would you use that 50mm for? You already have that range covered by your stock 18-55 lens. Your Canon 28-70 zoom covers 50mm too but is less than ideal, as its range is comparable to 45-112mm (multiply the focal length by 1,6 because your sensor is that much smaller).

As general advice, I would always invest in a good lens. Your camera body is just fine. Maybe you could sell both the 18-55 and 28-70 and consider an EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM. It has a stabilizer and the range really versatile, comparable to 24-136mm. If you want a better lens and have the money, the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 and 17-40mm 'L' are popular choices.

Again, if you have specific need for that 50mm f/1.8, ignore my advice.

Sorry, another Blue Angels ... couldn't resist.

Speaking of the 1.8 50mm I have some shots with it in the recent post.
