I'm going to be the first to put my hand up and apologise to Canon.
I was one of the many who were sceptical about the 60D. The fact is when I tested it out today at the Camera Expo at Photo Continental (Brisbane) I was very impressed.
SIZE - contrary to photo comparisons with the 50D it feels good in the hands - 8/10
LCD - crystal clear 1.04 million dots - 9/10
SWIVEL SCREEN - more solid than I first thought - 8/10
SPEED - 5.3 f.p.s is faster than you think - 8/10
MODE / DUAL BUTTONS - a little fiddly but I could easily get used to it - 7/10
OVERALL - 8/10
This camera fits in very well between the Rebel (550D) and 7D. Well done to the designers...it's a good camera.....
