Nice shots Nikol@!

Despite almost upgrading many times I'm still shooting with the 60D. It did let me down a few months ago when on vacation and the focus seemed a little off for more photos than I would have expected. But I’ve used it several times since and it’s been okay. The last time I was trying to sell it I couldn’t find a buyer so kept it and bought a CP and 10 stop ND which I’ve really enjoyed. Now I’m thinking about getting a 10-18 STM because as I do more landscape photos I find my Sigma 17-50 just isn’t wide enough. I’d like to upgrade to an 80D but find it difficult to justify the price since I mainly just post to Instagram and only print a handful of photos a year.

I had and still have the 60d. Great camera. I upgraded to the 80D and I must say night and day difference. Great High ISO. I don't post to Instagram or anything like that. I Don't think I will sell my 60D, and I still have my t3i. I'm not sure what to do with that.

I still have my 60D. I would also like to upgrade to the 80D, but right now just can't justify the cost. My main lens is the Sigma 17-70 macro lens. I too found 17mm too tight for many shots. I rented the Sigma 8-16 and the Sigma 10-20
I found 8MM too wide as everything I photographed seemed a lot smaller in the picture than what I liked. I realize it needs to do this to get more information in the photograph. I ended up getting the Tokina 11-20 f2.8 and love it for the constant f2.8 when needed.!

I was looking at the Tokina and would prefer it for the fixed aperture but it's quite a bit more than I want to spend. But I will keep my eyes opened for a used one.

I have found the 60D to be truly rugged and reliable... mine has been through hell and back, but still keeps clicking away with great results. Can't justify an upgrade to the 80D purely for high ISO performance, as most of my shooting is of animals in good light... *grin*

Pair this beauty up with decent glass, and you have the perfect combination for years of photographs IMHO...

I think my time with the 60d will be coming to an end soon. Yes, I know I've said that a few times now. Haha!

I was pretty frustrated with it last weekend. My landscape photos came out okay but while trying to photograph some shore birds (standing still on the beach) with my 70-200+1.4x despite getting the focus confirmation beep with the centre point all of the images were back focused by about a foot. And without MFA on the 60D there's no way for me to adjust it.

I'm also thinking I will get into BIF photography again which I have done with some success with the 60D when I had my 400mm so if I'm going down that road again I may as well update the body to take advantage of better AF and gain the ability to MFA so that what is supposed to be in focus is sharp.

So I'll be keeping my eyes open for a sale on the 80D or maybe even 7D2 and also another 400mm or 100-400 V1. The added bonus is that both of those bodies have the ability for some f8 focusing so I could add my 1.4x to either of the lenses and still have some degree of AF, something the 60D couldn't do.

Haven't been out to shoot much lately, but managed to get to the Newport Hill Climb a couple weekends ago in Newport, Indiana. Blue skies, perfect weather and plenty of interesting subject matter. It was also a good excuse to spend some more time learning my way around DxO Optics Pro 9. It's a bit more complicated than DPP4 but considerably faster on my computer. And the results seem to be worth the learning curve. I'm still stunned by the amount of detail it can pull out of almost completely blocked up shadows. And if you're careful and show a little restraint it doesn't mess up midtones and highlights in the process.

I knew there was a driver in the car, but I wasn't even aware there was a second parrot in there with him until I started with the editing later at home. Brought out a lot more texture in the main subjects feathers as well.

Thanks! Sorry for the late reply-i didn't have a comp at the time, and later I just forgot :D

Looks like quite a few of us are struggling with the same things... i was also thinking to upgrade body with something newer like 80D (or maybe even 6D, why the hell not hahah). I am generally satisfied with quality and reliability of my 60D, but I would like to have something that will give me better high ISO quality...

Still, it pays to explore the high ISO capabilities of the 60D. A routine shot in a automobile museum in Florida at ISO6400

Actually I have a better PP of the photo, but I had applied lens correction and the two halves of the photo appear mis-aligned...

What do you think takes better pictures, your 60d or t3i?
