Thanks for your thoughts on this. Fortunately, I'm not in a desperate rush to buy. I've still got all my 35mm SLR kit and am getting back into it shooting film. I was just shocked how expensive it is for film and processing! Someone has kindly offered to lend me their old 400D with a 17-85 on it. This is great for getting my head around digital ways of thinking. I've got a sneaking suspicion I may want to go full-frame now that the old love for photography is back. However, I do really like the lightness of plastic camera bodies and lenses as someone whose first love is landscape.
Presumably, the 600D won't increase in price again when a new model comes out so there is benefit in waiting.
Canon gear has always seemed to suit me better than Nikon and I felt the same way when comparing the 600D with the 5100. But seeing my substantial investment in Canon 35mm stuff - numerous bodies, L lenses etc now unusable in the digital context - I am a bit miffed at the way Canon has changed it's lens mounts so many times.
I don't really want to go APS-C and then change again.....
