For me, the T2i is too light to balance with a good lens and too small to hold comfortably. I pretty much shoot in manual and I find adjusting the controls cumbersome.

I have both, and completely agree with you point for point.

There's lots of sound advice about going with the cheaper body so you can get good lenses but if you think you'll really get into photography, go with the 60D. I bought a T2i 3 months ago and am upgrading to a 60D already- I pretty much shoot in manual and I find adjusting the controls cumbersome.

And I gotta agree with you on those points.
The original question the OP had was regarding "growing into" the camera. So although the T2i and 60d are going to give the same IQ, a person is more likely to want to upgrade a T2i sooner than a 60d for the added features.
But if price is a major concern, then the T2i is the no-brainer.
