Hey guys...a What-If question for you. I turn to you all because I see awesome pictures here. Some of you must be doing it right.

Here goes - If you had a Canon 60D and could only have one sub-$1500 lens in your bag, which one would it be?

I bought the kit with the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens and I'm just not that thrilled with it.

Maybe it's my improper usage of it but I feel the pictures could be better, i.e. clearer, sharper. Maybe I need some professional help.

yeah the 18-135mm you have isn't the sharpest tool in the shed.
I don't have too much knowledge of photography, but different lens makes you capture the moment you are looking for.
With that said, scour Flickr, and some reviews on different types of lens.
Most of the pictures on here have direct links to their Flickr, check out what kinds of lens they've used if you like that particular capture.

Also look up improving you photos by changing the DSLR factory settings.

I have a 60d too and I'm going through the same dilemma as you are, I'm looking for the right lens for my application, stuck with my 50mm for now.

My next purchase would be a EF-S10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

If you have a crop sensor I would recommend the 17-55mm 2.8, I have the 17-40mm F4L right now but kinda wish i had the 17-55 haha

What type of shooting do you mainly do? Daytime, night, action shots? All of this matters when trying to single out a lens. If you shoot mostly day time stuff you can get away with an f/4 lens and put the extra money towards a nice tripod in case you find yourself in low light. Everyone is going to need more info to be able to point you in the right direction. If you want a nice zoom lens I would recommend the 70-200 f/4 L IS. It can be had for around $1100. Fast auto focus and super sharp!

Look into a lens with a larger aperture. Something in the f/2, f1/8, or f/1.4. This should improve you images significantly.

I have no experience with Canon lenses so I have no input on that, but once upon a time I was really frustrated with my lack of crispy sharpness. I thought maybe my cheap camera wasn't up to the task or maybe that my problem was that I was using the kit lens. I eventually upgraded both, but what really helped the crispness of my shots was getting my exposure (more) right. That, and discovering the usefulness of the "sharpness" slider.

But, maybe you've got that whole exposure thing nailed.

First lens I ever bought was my Sigma 50/1.4. Still my hands down absolute go-to favorite lens.

and btw, who is Visual Echos? I googled the name, got lots of results, but nothing particularly useful. Anyone got a link? I think I could use a little inspiration. I've got that "in the rut" feeling.

Went out last week with someone I ran into at the grocery store. Had a lot of potential, but I feel it was the same-old, same-old and that I just didn't deliver. Should have been better, more creative. Just kind of meh instead.

I had heard the name before, mentioned in another discussion somewhere. And, looking through his site, he clearly does more than just rig shots.

yeah, I was just looking through his flickr page at what lenses he was using for different shots - noticed that 200/f2!

I would also really like to find some of those empty little roads he seems to have ready access to. He make great use of line and space (among other things).
