    I bought a canon eos 60D a while ago while on sale with a nice 18-250 lens which is pretty great for everything at the moment but I was looking into buying a new lens. Im mainly into shooting outdoors and taking shoots of nature. any suggestions would be appreciated!

    You gotta decide wide or tele first, but I guess the 18-250 is OK for the tele end at the moment, and I'd go for the 17-50 2.8 tamron or sigma
    if I were you (and I was doing the same thing some 2-3 years ago). Replaced the kit 18-55 with the 17-50 tamron (sigma is better IMHO),
    and then added the 55-250IS which is rather cheap.

    So you've got some great wide to tele focal length. I think you will love an ultra wide which is wider than the 18mm.

    or ef-s10-18mm but the aperture is smaller and smaller focal range.

    Naaah, the Tokina 11-16 2.8 (old version) and 11-20 2.8 (new version) along with the sigma 10-20 3.5 are all great and
    relatively cheap. I used the canon 10-22 3.5-4.5 a lot and that lens is amazing but IMHO overpriced and I wouldn't
    want a variable aperture.
