Any on here?

I'm very nearly about to buy one but I'm 50/50 on getting a 60D and then saving for glass, or wait and get the 70D or 7D then glass?

Does anyone have any untouched images from a 60D at airshows with a Sigma 50-500 / Canon 100-400 or Canon 400 5.6 lenses? Would like to see some samples please!


Many thanks..

I'm of little help with your question, but I just bough a 60d because I couldn't resist the price. I like it a lot. It will go well with my T3i. There is a thread in this forum that claims the 70d is not a great improvement over the 60d. So I you do decide on one of the two, it looks like from early reviews and comments that you could get the 60d and be on a winning side with money left over for other goodies.
Here is the thread:

There's no reason to worry about the camera or the lens with airborne or ground bound subjects. The only challenge is in operating the heavy combination hand-held at a slow shutter speed to get useful prop blur with aircraft slow prop speeds, such as the pictured Aerospatiale helicopter and V-22 Osprey. However, that's a challenge with any supertelephoto lens.

Heck, I shot a space shuttle launch plus some Air Force demonstrations with 60D/55-250 combo. Obviously would have done better with USM but it did quite well regardless.

Makis and Watt, nice photos, but you really need a slower shutter speed with helicopters and prop driven aircraft. 1/500 is far too much for a chopper, and 1/2500 on a prop plane will have it looking like the engine is stopped from any angle. Personally for this type of shot I would consider 1/160 to be the fastest shutter speed that you would want to be using. Get a big helicopter, like a seaking maybe and it will need to come down slower than that. This one needed 1/60s

Went with 1/125 here to try to give an idea just how fast one of these can roll (540 degrees/second) on full stick. You can just see the wing tip blur as it rolls. Gives a nice full prop disk too. Sorry Radders not with a 60D for either (can only afford a 20D), but it is a 100-400L (hired @ £80 for a weekend).
