A while ago I posted about which camera. So I finally got a twins lens kit with the canon 60d for $1200 brought down from $1500. I'm happy

Best wishes for your new gear. I'll bet that you are going to be happy with it.
A must buy accessory is a lens hood. I would purchase one for each lens so when I was switching lenses, I would not need to switch the hoods; saving a bit of time in the process.
BTW: Chinese knock off lens hoods are perfectly adequate and sell for a fraction of the Canon OEM prices. I travel with a pair of hoods for each of my travel lenses (70-200mm f/4L IS and 17-55mm f/2.8 IS) I lost a lens hood shooting out of a narrowly opened hotel window in Yangshuo, China and had to wait until I arived in Hong Kong to get a replacement. I have carried duplicates on all my trips ever since. They are Chinese knock offs and do a fine job.

Congratulations on your new shooter!
I think you made the right choice (I never had any doubts that you would). I think you got more camera than you would have with your other two possibilities and I’m betting that it will serve you well.
Looking forward to seeing your new shootin’ iron in action, Brother!
