I have 500D at present and a hobyist in spare time.
I am planning to give my daughter a camera this birthday (she is a major now). I have three options
3. My 500D with 18-135 or 18-55 lens
If she is open to third option, I get opportunity to upgrade myself to 60D. I am not considering 600D as it has only one crosstype AF sensor (am I right). My 500D, the other day refused to focus using one of outer focus points when the scene was back lit. The centre point locked on instantaneously. I use my camera only for still and not at all for video. Further the price difference between 600 & 60 is manageable.
Since I am not be upgrading again in a hurry again for many years Is their any views on my choice of camera. Is 60D likely to be upgraded soon to 65D (especially sensor)
Thanks for your views in advance
