Hello people,

I have a Rebel XS (1000D) and I'm evaluating to do an upgrade.
The two models I'm considering are T5i and 60D.
My PROs for T5i are: lightweight, smaller, Digic 5 processor.
My PROs for the 60D: price (cheaper)....what else? (Better grip and longer battery are not pros for me).

What I want is less noise on higher ISO pictures, and better overall quality (I know it depends also on the lens).

Which camera you suggest I should choose?

Thank you!!!

If this is you primary consideration, then it doesn't matter at all which you choose as they have the same sensor and will deliver the same final image. The difference between the two is primarily size and weight. The T5i is smaller and lighter than the 60D, and feature set. Other than that, toss a coin.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

For me the ease of use in the controls makes the 60D preferable over the rebel. Once you get used to the interface of the 60D you will find it much simpler to use and more intuitive.

This ^^ also the top LCD is a huge plus, I hardly ever look at my rear display anymore for most settings changes.

I just upgraded from the T2i to the 60D and I am loving it. As I continue to get used to the interface of the 60D I am finding it easier to use than the T2i.

i seen 60Ds at a good price and wanted to upgrade from my T2i but for the same IQ i was thinking about the 70D but do you see a difference in IQ or just the feel and size you like better

I prefer the ergonomics and controls of the 60D. If you like the smaller lighter T5i, go for it. They will both produce fine images.

OK, can't wrong with either. Seems like a lot of deals on the 60D since the 70D was announced
