This is absolutely wrong. At best, the 50D noise profile was no worse than the 40D's. The only point of contention was the reviews that said the 50D was noisier than the 40D.

No, the 50D's noise profile was better in the frame than the 40D's. It was slightly worse if you insisted on blowing shots from each up to 100% and comparing them at the pixel level. But the 50D's higher resolution more than made up for that.

The 50D's biggest problem was horizontal banding at higher ISOs (primarily after you started to exceed 3200), but that's something that can, for the most part, be dealt with in software.

I wish I could, but that will lead me to downgrade from my 7D. The answer is no for me.

On the fence. Looking to upgrade from my XTi for something with Live View and HD video.

It seems the 60D is targeted right at someone like me.

Had my eye on the T2i for a while, and was very interested in the 7D, but concerned with weight. I've saved up a bit of money where i could probably get a new body and a 15-85 or 24-105.

If the 60D has better erganomics than the T2i and IQ is on par with the 7D i may pull the trigger. The swivel screen isn't that important to me.

Hoping that either the 60D or the 7D will be included in some type of combo for the fall rebates :D

Should have also had the option...

I'm ambivalent about plastic construction. I've used many cameras that have quite a few polycarbonate parts, which have worked fine... In fact I ride a bicycle that's mostly polycarbonate, to achieve very low weight and a comfortable ride, while still remaining rigid in the places where it counts. Polycarbonates are being used in Formula 1 cars and commercial aircraft wings, too. I'm sure Canon weighed using plastic for weight reduction against durability and market expectations.

I have a Glock 19, 9mm Semi-Automatic pistol... polycarbonate body with a steel barrel. It does fine...

But I must admit, for my camera I prefer the size and weight of the magnesium shell of my 40D, which is one of the reasons why I chose it over the Nikon D90.

i have a Sig SP2022 and a HK USPc 45. both are "plastic" and are tougher and lighter than "metal" guns.

No, was looking forward to it originally.

Liked the idea of an articulating screen (and still do) and want a camera that shoots video as well.

But a reduction in FPS, switch to SD cards, new batteries, and other little nit picky things makes me no longer interested.

maybe they will release a 5DMK3 or 7D Mk2 with an articulating screen next year.

Ummm, the 60D uses the same battery as the current 7D and 5D. It gives it almost double the battery life of the 50D. Can't say I can complain about that.

The size of the 60D is identical to the size of the 50D. The weight is 50g less. I don't think you will have an issue with size or weight.

Yes, I'm buying it. I was going to get a T2i to use it mainly for video work, but the 60D sounds like a good photo camera and does great video too, so instead of the T2i I will get the 60D.

I might buy one but I'll wait for the price to drop a fair bit first.

I voted 'No'...I currently looking to upgrade and the 50D is most favorable as far as being more of a semiprofessional camera. The 60D is probably a good option for someone in need of video options but, for me, it looks like it should be in the line of a Rebel.

It's not for me. For a lot of people though, I think it would be a great camera.

The 60D would be a downgrade....I bought the T2i, then 7D. Sold the T2i. Bought 5D II as a 2nd body. Since I'm in a upgrade path, my next body would be a 1D/1Ds.

Im an amateur currently using a Rebel XT and have been researching for awhile now looking for the upgrade that is right for me. The 60D looks like it fits the bill for me.
I love the screen btw. I love taking pics of the moon and Im tired of kneeling on the ground in the dark. For me this is a huge upgrade.

??? Why don't you use a tall tripod (or tripod large enough for your setup)

And No, I will not buy a 60D

Yes for the family as the perfect cam for my wife. She thought the 20D was big and the 7D was just huge. I love the feature list on a smaller, lighter body.

I don't personally need one for myself as I have the 7D.
