    Try this link: http://www.dpreview.com
    On the left side of the screen Select: Forums: then Cannon D30,D60, 10D
    Read, ask questions to your hearts content there. Or you can also select
    the: Canon SLR Lenses
    forum too. It is just like here, everyone has an opinion and your sure to
    find several there. One thing I do like is that there are several posts
    with photos from various users , with different lenses and Canon DSLR
    combinations and you can get a feel for what looks good for you depending on
    how much money you want to, or can , spend.

    had problems with getting a password going there too. I cannot remember
    how I solved it.
    But, at least you can read the messages there and find a lot of useful
    information. And it seems to me that everytime I start to post a question,
    that if I do a search there, I find that someone else has already posted a
    similar question and a whole lot of people have already answered.
    So, at least you can do some research there. And also, if you already have
    your camera and you have a good camera store nearby, you can always take
    your camera with you to try out different lenses. And then when you get
    home take a look at the photos you took testing different lenses. That is
    what I do.
    I even found a cheap zoom lense that I am probably going to buy from them.
    It's a Phoenix 100-400mm
    f4-5.6. It's $200.00 USD, and takes some pretty good pictures for the
    price.

    Most definitely, excellent choice, but you will still need
    something for the "bottom end", as that lens will become
    a 44-120 on your D60. You will need a wide-angle
    zoom (something like 17-35, which is the equivalent of
    a 25-52) or maybe only a good extra-wide prime (I know,
    it might be even more expensive...) See if the lens Canon
    bundles with the new EOS-300D (17-55, if I remember
    correctly) is available separately. BTW, I can't vouch for
    the quality of that lens because I've never tried it ( I'm a
    Nikon user), but since it's a genuine Canon, I'm
    *assuming* it's at least decent.
