SLRs have long since met the quality requirements for great images. Everything new in the past few years are just gravy really. Brand/spec arguments are just for fun.

I confused about the information that the 70-300 IS is not listed on the Canon page anymore.
My personal 60D dealbreakers are: no AF Microadjust, shift to SD cards, keeping the 40D/50D 9-pt. AF sensor, single-axis electronic level, and single Speedlite commander. The first one and the latter two seem like mere deliberate crippling, it's not as if Canon would save any money by doing that.
AF microadjust: No
but over the past decade Canon has release roughly a new kit lens a year, so I think there's place for hope.
Most often camera companies introduce interesting new features/processors first on lower level DSLRs, even on compacts ad only then after "real-time" testing they bring these features onto higher grade bodies.
