I was pretty set on the 60D until I started reading some comparisons. Mainly that the D7000 has better low light performance and way more AF points.
Here was the comparison given of the 2 as to why the D7000 was better
Much more dynamic range 13.9 EV vs 11.5 EV
Significantly better color depth 23.5 bits vs 22.2 bits
Continuous video focus Yes vs No
Many more focus points 39 vs 9
Video autofocus Contrast detection vs None
Significantly better viewfinder coverage 100% vs 96%
Larger viewfinder 0.62x vs 0.59x
Has more storage slots 2 vs 1
Slightly larger sensor APS-C 23.6x15.6mm vs APS-C 22.3x14.9mm
Shoots slightly faster 6 fps vs 5.3 fps
Slightly less shutter lag 238 ms vs 253 ms
Slightly more lenses available 169 lenses vs 162 lenses
Better boost ISO 25,600 ISO vs 12,800 ISO
I don't really have any canon lenses right now because I sent the 15-85 I ordered back so I will be starting with nothing. And I know this is a Canon forum but I am hoping I can get some honest opinions. I have played with both the cameras and I find the 60D's settings and menus to make way more sense and I love the way it feels but if the D7000 is a much better camera I am sure I would get used to it just fine.
