I have a 10 year old Canon 30d that I am in desperate need of upgrading. It's been around the world and takes pictures like it. It was also the last sensor that Canon made without a sensor cleaner (fucking dust spots).

Now that I have children (and mortgage, etc, etc) I can't just go spend as much as I want on such things.

It looks like I will pick up a Canon 70d after the 80d comes out on Friday.

Question: does anyone have a Tamron 16-300mm lens? I'm torn at the moment between buying another Canon 70-300mm lens (dropped!) and trying to get my Canon 17-85mm lens repaired (it has a hair in it) or spending a tad bit less for the Tamron and eliminating the lens changes. Changing lenses is just a pain when travelling with two children. I would love to buy an L glass or a 2.8 lens but it's not in my budget at the moment.

Or should I just suck it up and buy a full frame camera?
