Would you call a 60D a super rebel?

nate42nd... I think you should handle a D7000 or a D300s and those feel way better than the 7D

I have to agree with aboss3 the D7000 just "feel" more solid than the 60D.. its a very impressive camera for sure, and way better in some aspects, that was my first choice also (I was jumping ship from sony) but who cares if the D7000 have 39 AF points ?? the only 2.8 (crossed) are 9 in the center.. that array is very strange and make the corners not as accurate as the the ones used on the XXD

I have handled the D300s. I looked at it when buying the 7D. The 7D felt WAY better to me. It must be the way a persons hands are built, the size of your hands and personal preference. The 7D is the best "feeling" (and working) camera I have ever used.

i would call a 60d a prosumer camera, but not entry level like a rebel whatsoever. this is just imo but canon's earlier xxD series have seemed like semi pro cameras to me. in fact ive seen most wedding photographers use the xxD series with L glass for most of my auntie's weddings.

You've never actually handled a Glock, have you?

Yes, frequently. Less so since 1997 ;). It is a totally capable piece of kit, I'm just not keen on (what in my opinion is) the 'springy vague' feel of the trigger let off compared to the crisp feel of traditionally manufactured kit. Like I say 'subjective'.

Unlike some people who post their opinions on 'specs' or a two minute fumble over a shop counter, mine is based on actually using the equipment over time.

You use the word 'plastic' too loosely!

Heck, too many people use the word 'plastic' too loosely..

My point exactly.:D The word is being used by some to 'put down' a really good camera/gun just because it doesn't fit their view of how the world should be.


Gear still the same. Wife drops in now and again though :cool:.

Whats so funny is all we are talking about is a camera FFS not a gun or a jet fighter or a helmet just a camera its only a camera!

Why the need to use offensive language?

People are just using their experience in other fields to point out the errors in some thinking/logic. Then, I guess you new that...............I hope. ;)

Haha yeah well that was intended to show there is a large difference between a plane, gun and a camera. Yep just pointing out the errors in someones thinking/logic :)

just think along canon's lines. the flagship is the 1D models. Which will be closer to it in the next generation? 7D II? after the 7D or 70D after 60D?

only the pro/semi pro cameras go under revisions rather than the xxD series..which canon just churns out another version every 2 years or so...they make revisions on tested and accepted models, not on baseline models.

Sure the 60D is a fantastic camera, and maybe its better than the rebel line, but please, lets be frank, it's not a pro camera, rather an advanced amateur version. Polycarbonate is far cheaper than metal.

Works in all applications: plastic watch/ metal watch. plastic lens/ metal lens, etc.


7D, 17-55 f2.8 IS, 70-200 f2.8 IS II, 50 f1.4

Then perhaps you can explain what metal was included specifically to make it detectable at airports?

I know this has been said (several times) in this thread, and in others on the 60D, but some people just need to come to grips with the fact that Canon has re-aligned their product offerings with the models based on the 18mp sensor.

Go back to the 15mp crop sensor line, and the lineup was 500D (T1i) -> 50D.

With the 18mp crop sensor, they introduced the 7D, positioned between the 50D and FF. Next, they introduced the 550D (T2i) above the 500D.
Next, they introduced the 60D ("The Great Satan") between the 550D and the 7D, with the 7D for the aspiring professional or advanced enthusiast, and the 60D for the advanced amateur for which the 7D is too big a step.

Next, they further increased the capability of the "rebel" line with the 600D (T3i) to provide the Rebel buyers features like the flip screen (which should have put to bed the notion that the 60D was targeting the Rebel market, but since there are so many xxD users who continue to view the 60D as The Great Satan, it has not).

So, in the market space formerly covered by the 500D -> 50D, with the 15mp sensor, they now have 4 cameras with the 18mp sensor: 550D -> 600D -> 60D -> 7D. Even though the 7D did push the crop sensor market up-scale, it needed more room between itself and what an 18mp version of the 50D would have given it, hence the re-alignment.

That's my "from the sideline" reading of Canon's moves, anyway.

The Nikon D7000, btw, is in my view where the 50D was, in between the 60D and the 7D, so Canon does not have a direct competitor... they have straddled it with their current lineup. Whether these moves by Canon will be successful in defending their share of the market remains to be seen.

Now, maybe all of the wounded-ego xxD owners find something else to discuss...

Good point, although I'd argue the D7k has the slight edge over the 7D imho, so Canon does have a direct competitor to the 7D, it's just the 7D is a little over priced atm.

Canon and Nikon have pretty much always done this. None of the bodies line up feature to feature. They have always sort of straddled each other.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

How can the D7000 be better, with all that plastic? ;)
