I would go with the 60D option. Get the better body and build your collection of glass around that. I went with a t2i, no complaints other than the body is starting to show signs of wear (grip coming of the frame). But it really depends on what you shoot more of, best of luck with your purchase!

Hello out there, I’m just pondering about buying a new kit
but I just can’t figure out, here the deal I’m in a big dilemma right now about
buying between a Canon T2i with a Canon EF 70-200mm F4L USM lens or a Canon 60D
with Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens so what you people out there would
advise me, thank you in advance and your respond would be very much appreciated.
