QUESTION TO ALL....
Does this forum have an "ignore user" function so we can be rid of persistently childish comments like this?

it looks a decent and balanced review and confirms my view of the camera re other bodies I've used. To "me" it is a worthy upgrade (yes to me I'd regard it as an upgrade) to the 50D because it delivers a small step up in IQ and it has some nice new features like the articulating screen (love it). Those bits that went down like FPS are not a concern to me and I find the slight weight reduction a boon. The use of the LP-6 was a selling point (again "for me") as it means I only need to carry one battery type and charger for both my bodies.

And on the subject of the "Super Rebel" tag, I couldn't care less about whether this denigrates a line or anything like that, my only objection is that in my country there is no such thing as a rebel. You get 350, 400, 550D etc. So you can keep your "Super rebel" ...down under it will always be the 60D.

Basically what I said an hour ago.. Let's just discuss the 60d. They should have just called it the coldcuts113D....:p

At least we're not in Japan. Then I could see people actually having a reason to get bent out of shape. "Super Kiss?" Eek.

I've posted this before, even with the MA and lack of CF card, it's still a heck of a deal for $899 shipped from an auth dealer(s) with the current Canon rebates for the next few weeks. *And you get video if you want or need it..

It's probably the best deal currently across all makers, imo.

Regarding the "60D" tag, it is silly, imho, to get bent out of shape about the name of a camera. However, I think we are seeing that camera companies (Canon with the 60D and Panasonic with the GF2) are creating some issues for themselves by not thinking through names/model #s more carefully. The name/number carries with it an expectation. If that expectation is not matched by the actual product (or perception of the product) negativity will be the result. And it doesn't matter how much of an upgrade the 60D actually is from the 50D, what matters is peoples' perception. Marketing 101 (or maybe 102).

I upgraded from canon xti after using it as my first camera for 3 years, it was a huge step for me, because everything is crazy about the 60D, I'm loving the camera.

Don't see why you guys have to argue over a camera... at the end of the day I see a lot of people taking better pictures with their XTi's compared to guys who buy new 5D mkII's who take pictures of the wood on their front porch or flowers, oh ya....

The comparison gallery has been posted. (Link here (external link)) It includes side-by-sides with the D7000 and the K5. DPReview's new comparison widget is impressive.

The Pentax K-5 high ISO performance is awesome, the 12800 iso RAW image is pretty noiseless compared to the Canon offerings, no wonder Pentax users are happy. It's probably better than the 5dm2 and on a crop sensor as well.

I used to shoot an *istD and let me tell you, Pentax has come a LONG way where noise at high ISO is concerned. I agree, the K5 performs remarkably in that test.

The only thing worth saying about the 60D "controversy" is that anyone upgrading within the tier is walking into a bit of a trap as the line is repositioned. The lesson is consumers should stay vigilant and not just assume a bigger number means an awesomer camera.

Also, let's fight about it.
