Would you call a 60D a super rebel?

I just "upgraded" to the 60D from my 40D, initially intending on keeping both. But I absolutely adore my new 60D and for me, it's a vast improvement over my old 40D which I have now sold.

Call it a super Rebel if you wish, it certainly doesn't bother me - in fact, it sounds kind of cool! B)

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

It came down between the D300s and the 7D when I was deciding and the 7D won hands down. I guess feel is relevant to the user. Not only did it feel better the Canon menu and buttons are much nicer to work with. This is coming from a guy that shot Nikon 35mm film his whole life so the digital switch was also a brand switch and I have no regrets.

As far as Super Rebel goes I'm going for a no as it says 60D on it not Rebel.

I can help but to wonder if a Canon (or Nikon) rep is reading this thread and laughing his *** off! To me the 60D is a nice bridge camera which addresses what Canon thought was a sweet spot. I guess I don't know enough about prior generations or Nikons line up to put together a positioning matrix so I will just leave it to other people to debate.

Helll, put it down for being "plastic", not having MA - or more to the point, blame Canon for their poor choice to a actually make this PoS in the first place ;)
