I've sold my old camera equipment (Canon Rebel 300d, Canon 17-85) and ready to buy new.
Which one:
Canon T2i with Tamron 28-75
or
Refurb Canon 60d with refurb Canon 18-135

I mainly shoot family photos. Video is not important.

I would vote 60D with the tammy :-) but the budget may not stretch that way.

What didn't you like about the old setup..... Without any info... I would pick on the lens and go with the first but if you hated the rebel then that is prob not a good option.

The rebel 300d was just not up to par with the newer cameras. Worked okay with good light.

Isn't it great when one decides to present himself with new gear ?

I vote for the 60D plus a lens of your choice.
The 28mm on the Tamron are probably too long for a wide perspective.

60D + Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 or just get the 18-55mm IS. The 18-55mm IS will be shorter than the 18-135mm obviously, but it has better image quality and is significantly cheaper so you can save money for something better later.

I was thinking more about the lens than the camera. What pushes everyone toward the 60D over the T2i?

I've had both the 60D is a little larger, less plastic construction and some nice features. Nice features include swivel LCD, great for live view even if you don't need video, multiple raw sizes, on camera editing. I don't recall if the T2i supports wireless control of 430/580 EX II flashes but the 60D does.

Nothing you can't live without but nice to haves.
