I order a 60D body last night, so I can post in this thread now. I was torn between the 60D and the 7D. I went to the store last week and spent 20 minutes with both cameras and decided I liked the 60D. Here is why:
Previous camera - I'm coming from an XSi, not a 50D. Most of the people who are unhappy with the 60D are coming from a 40D or 50D and are used to the joystick and it's features. Coming from the relatively basic XSi I don't have to unlearn something that others miss.
Weight - Although I liked the little larger size of the 7D, I could see where along with a heavy lens the extra weight might bug me when walking around for the day.
SD card memory - Everything I use, my laptop, TV, other cameras, playstation, etc. uses SD cards. I already have 3 8GB SDHC cards. Switching to CF would've incured more cost in both cards and a reader.
Cost - Always a factor, but not a major one on this purchase as I could have afforded the 7D. I like not spending the extra $500, maybe I can get some glass.
Articulating screen - I like the ability to fold the screen back in to protect it. I also like that the camera can autofocus (although slowly) in live view while I hold it at a weird angle. I have knee problems and sometimes have issues positioning myself to get the shot.
The menus that get good reviews on the 7D seem the same on the 60D, so no loss there. The rest of the feature set on the 60D is a substantial upgrade for me, so it should be great.
I have been debating on upgrading my glass to go with the new body. I will keep my cheap Sigma 50mm macro, but the others may change. I have been using the 17-85mm IS as my walk around lens. I have seriously considered upgrading it to a used 15-85mm IS. If I can sell the 17-85 my net cost to upgrade won't be too bad. As for my 70-300mm IS lens, I do like the range, but I have to think I'd get better shots from the 70-200 F/4 IS. Any advise on the glass?
