Got my 60d today... Woot woot!!!
Freaking lens hood somehow blocks eithe the flash or it gets on the way at the bottom center.
If its a petal shaped hood try repositioning the hood with the petal shape in a different orientation/angle.

I posted this question in another thread under Accessories but haven't gotten much response.
For anyone that has a genuine Canon BG-E9 grip for their 60D can you tell me for fact what material it is made of? In some places on the interweb I'm hearing magnesium and in others I'm hearing plastic. Which is it?
Silica Infused Polycarbonate (glass reinforced plastic). Same construction as the 60D body.
Btw: FYI to any lurkers/readers out there. The 60d is the first modern Canon XXD body that did not employ a magnesium alloy frame. But pick up a TXi variant and then pick up the 60D and you can definitely tell the difference. It's no 7D body but it's no plastic fantastic TXi either.
Not many people realize this but the 60D employs two "firsts" for canon. That is the unique multi use directional scroll wheel and a new reinforced polycarbonate body, both of which are not represented on any other canon body. To be fair, the body has yet to be proven over a long multiple generation series like the XXD but barring any negative influences Canon will likely keep it for future series'.
Canon 60D FTW!
