Not really. It only takes a quick glance on something like DPReview and the differences become glaringly obvious. You were the one that started the thread thus:

"I couldn't find a single reason as to why she should get the 60D over the T2i or the T3i"

There are quite a few if you bother to look!

I'm going to have to agree with him--your comment was pretty arrogant and rude. It's not like the 60D is a phenomenal leap beyond the capabilities of the t3i or even the t2i. Beyond the articulating screen, the poly body (no mag frame so -1), top-LCD and adjusted button-placement, it has few real improvements over what the t3i offers. The improved burst rate isn't really important considering it has the same tracking capabilities of the t2i/t3i... which isn't that great to start with. Larger buffer? I wouldn't use one of these for action/tracking photography anyhow. The 60D doesn't even have micro-adjustment! That's a deal-breaker in my mind.

I am recommending a T2i or T3i for my sister rather than a 60D (she wants her first DSLR). It saves her a little bit of $$ and she can use that toward a lens or flash. I think the size of the Rebel will also work well for her. I have a T3i in my kit for a compact, and it is a fine little camera.

His question was not in the abstract regarding the differences, but quite specific. And, your answer was rude, IMO.

I often find that when I venture an opionion it becomes necessary to follow up with begging for forgiveness.

What intention does she have using the camera?
Does she have any preferences in subject matter.
Does she envision a glorified P&S or a learn to use real camera?

This would be my question as well. If she wants a P&S with no shutter lag and detachable lenses the t2i would probably be a great choice.

If she wants to really learn to use an SLR I would think the second wheel would be a pretty nice feature.

Also, ergonomics is a pretty personal thing. I vastly prefer the feel of the 60d to one of the tiny rebels but I know lots of people who feel the opposite.
