I've gotten good results at 3200 and 6400 with the 60D if I over-expose a stop or two. Or as they say around here, ETTR (expose to the right, on the histogram). Would be a good time to shoot RAW instead of jpeg too, if you aren't already. You might try this with your T3 for that matter and see if there's an improvement.

Also helps if you don't pixel peep at 200%. ;)

Agree with this. i've gotten usable results up to 6400 if i ETTR. And yes, always shoot RAW. I had a T3i a when they first came out and contrary to what some may say, the 60D is way ahead. Same sensor...yes. But, pentaprism vs pentamirror...yeah...6​0D win. 2 dials, 1 for aperture and 1 for SS...win again. Top LCD (nostalgic for us film shooters)...Win.

Etc...Etc...i think you get the picture ;)

So I think it's safe to say it's a good upgrade over the T3 haha

Any regrets not going with the 70d? I don't see the point with the extra $400-500 to be honest, when I could get a 70-200 f4 on top of the 60d, which will help me in low light somewhat.

This is ISO12800 RAW with ETTR with the 60D (100% crop). ISO 6400 is routine.

Left RAW untouched/right RAW with full PP (Noise Reduction as good as I can do it).

That's some crazy good results!

I'll have to learn the differences in editing RAW as compared to JPEG in LightRoom.

I find that you can have decent results if you ETTR and stay in the native ISOs (i.e. up to ISO 6400 in the 60D, up to ISO 25600 in the 5DIII and some 70D files I had a chance to work with).

This was only ISO 3200 but you can pixel-peep to 100%. It blows my mind every time I look at it and I shot the photo.

To see it at full resolution, click on the photo to get to my Photobucket. Then click at the magnifying glass icon at the bottom right corner for the next two photos.

No regrets for me personally, i do like the advance AF on it and wouldn't mind having that, and the fact that it has WiFi like my 6D, but the 70D really seems more geared towards the video crowd from what i can tell.

The 60D and 70-200 F/4 mate really well together, and for around $500 used you can't really go wrong. As a challenge to myself (focal length wise) i used only the 60D and the 70-200 F/4 for a photoshoot and it performed flawlessly from 70 through 200.

It's the only zoom lens i own :D

Thanks for the input! I don't think I could pull the price of a 70-200 f2.8, so f4 may have to do for now and it'd still be an upgrade over my tammy 70-300 for low light

I think I'll wait until I graduate in May to see if I get any other gift cards and then I'll buy the body new from Best Buy since they price match and I already have $200 in gift cards :D

The tamron 70-300 vc is a great lens. Not sure which one you have.

You will not go wrong. I use two lenses, one of them being the 70-200 f/4 because I could not afford the 2.8. Other than really low light situations, and then I just increase ISO, it has become the mainstay of my gear.
I love my 60D.

I have the 70-300 VC, it's a great lens for the price. Very sharp and fairly quick focusing. It's just a bit too slow compared to an f4, or f2.8 L lens. I'll keep it either way though.

Glad to hear! I'm hoping it will do the job and be my first L lens :D

It looks a bit out of my range as far as price goes, or else I'd probably look into the f4 IS or f2.8 non-IS. We'll see when the time comes though!

Just pulled the trigger and ordered a 60D. Should have it by the 25th. As soon as I get it I am going to want to send my 40D out for a sensor cleaning/maintenance. Any suggestions on good companies to do this?
