T3i but I went and bought a 60D instead!!!! :D

I am over the moon right now. The battery is charging and I am reading the manual while I wait. I picked up a 15-85 today as well so I am set for camera equipment forever!

Good call! I like the Rebel series, but I've always been impressed by the build quality of the 60D.

I had the choice between the 60D and 7D. I was a bit worried about the articulating screen on the
60D so I bought the 7D instead but I have not heard of anyone who has had problems so far. I am sure you will enjoy your camera, have fun!

i have yet to hear about a problem with the articulating screen. i've put mine through the paces more than a few times with absolutely no issues. it's solid.

Welcome to the club! SexyD is a great camera and the 15-85 is one of the best EF-S lenses. Have fun! Join us in the 60D owners forum!

You'll definitely prefer the shutter and viewfinder over the T3i, and you'll appreciate top LCD if you've never had one before. Happy shooting!

Congrats. May I ask why you decided to go with the 60D over the T3I
