... from what iv read a replacement or 60d-7D amalgamation announcement should be coming soon, however i have no idea when we could expect the product to hit store shelves or its release price.
There's a very good chance that Canon will announce a new 1.6x camera in Jan/Feb.
So, if you wait a few more weeks, you will be in a better position to decide what to get.
You can be sure, though, that whatever gets announced will be more expensive that the 60D.
Also, the 60D price might go up slightly after New Year.
So, if you want the best deal, get a 60D now. Otherwise, wait a little.
