I have a canon 60D for the last 6 years. It is the first in the 60D/70D/80D family. It came with the CANON 18-135 IS ZOOM LENS - which is a good all around lens - sharp with good range. After a couple years I wanted a bit more range and bought a TAMRON 18-270 DII VC ZOOM LENS - a bit heavier and stiffer to work - but incredible range - and sharp pictures. Great image stabilization. Fantastic for Air Shows and distant objects - it has become my lens of choice for the camera. It is the top rated zoom on the market - costs $350 - $425 on the internet. It is better and cheaper than the CANON 18-200 IS ZOOM LENS. The TAMRON 16-300 VC ZOOM LENS - may be better for about $600. Avoid any lens with a range that starts at 28 mm - such as 28 -80 mm or 28-135 mm. The wide end will not be wide enough in a lot of situations. Skip the two lens kits 18-55mm and 55-250 mm with the camera, unless you want to carry two lenses and be swapping them out constantly - instead of cranking the zoom and shooting the picture. Changing lenses in wet or dusty weather is not good for either lens or camera. The 18-55mm lens will be too limiting in range. Always get a lens with image stabilization. IS for CANON, VC for TAMRON. Image stabilization is an absolute must for sharp pictures with any telephoto lens. The canon 80D is a terrific camera - but only as good as the lens you put on it.
