Well, I finally got the money to upgrade to the 60D! Now its a matter of finding one for sale for a good price, otherwise I gotta transfer my funds to my bank from paypal and get one through the CLP program. Cant really decide which would be best... used or CLP. Any thoughts?

You will love the 60D. I have one and it performs very well. The flip out screen is helpfull, not a sales pitch for me, but its helpfull. You will enjoy using it. If you don't have great glass, get some. I use the 70-200mm f/2.8 II and this lens gives magic images on FF and the crop 60D

Enjoy and congrats when u get it.

I have the glass listed in my signature. I also use a 70-300 at times when I borrow it from my roommate. I want to try the 70-200 before I commit to paying that much for a lens. See if its really worth it for me to get that over my own 70-300. I really like the long range, and I use the 300mm a lot with dog photography.

I have played around with the 60D a bit, and the flip out screen isnt what sold me on it, but I will admit its a HUGE part of why I like it. The main thing I like is the video feature, otherwise I would've gone for a used 50D and saved some money.

Also, back to the topic of glass, I am considering upgrading to the 50mm 1.4, and the 18-135, or the 18-200 to replace my 28-135. the 18-55 is going bye bye with my Xti to a friend who is getting his first DSLR.

I would buy the clp over used. If the camera has a problem, it will probably be apparent soon after you buy it, and clp has a warranty.

I'm one model behind you on both ends. I just upgraded a few weeks ago from an XT to a 50D. WOW, I cannot overestimate what a joy that upgrade has been. First, I never gelled with the XT's ergonomics at all. That body was just way too tiny for my big hands. The 50D fits my hands like a glove. It feels so much more solid, well-built and professional than the XT. The autofocus seems so much quicker on the 50D too, and combined with the much higher frames per second rate of fire, I feel like I am capturing a bunch of shots I missed before. I also think you are going to be pleasantly surprised at how that nifty fifty of yours comes to life on the 60D.

Congrats to you, and I think you are in for a lot of fun.


My quite modest little gear list: 50D gripped | 135L | 50 1.4 | 50 1.8 | 85 1.8 | 28-105 3.5-4.5 | Speedlite 420EX | 2 Yongnuo 460ii | stands, 2 umbrellas, one softbox

Thank you! I have used a 60D a hand full of times. My friend bought one just under a year ago, and I have been messing with one at Best Buy or the camera shop when I've had the chance. It also fits my hands a hell of a lot better then the tiny Xti and I cant wait to start using it tomorrow.

Well I got my 60D today, and it is everything I expected, and a whole lot more! I am severely impressed with this camera, and I cant wait to learn all the new features and functions that I have been missing out on with an Xti :P
