Well let's see, I currently own a 450D and a gripped 7D and I've even got a few shots over in the gallery section of this forum with a 1DIV.
- the 70D is coming because the T4i now has virtually the same specs as the 60D, no reason whatsoever to buy a 60D anymore and Canon knows it. It will probably get the 7D 19pt AF, 8 FPS and the new 18MP sensor from the T4i. I'm guessing $1200 - $1500
I'd rather have a 60D over a T4i/650D. Have you used anything other than a Rebel before? Serious question and I'm not trying to be a d*ck. The size, build quality and lack of function is just terrible compared to everything else above it. The dentist excites me more than the new 650D.
I'll more than likely pick up a 5DIII early next month so I guess the answer to your question would be yes, I've used more than a rebel. Having said that, I still enjoy using my rebel when I want a lightweight kit, which is why I didn't sell it when I bought the 7D last year.
Believe it or not, some people actually like the smaller form factor and yes the cheaper price of the rebel bodies and since you're so experienced, you know the IQ is pretty much identical between the 2 ranges. Actually, until Canon releases either the 70D or the 7DII, the lowly T4i with it's new version of the 18MP sensor now has the best IQ of any APS-C body, go figure..haha
And yes I think you were trying to be a dick..lol!! Unfortunately, that's not something that phases me.
