...I'm definitely set on the 60D or upcoming replacement (may end up holding off until June to see what happens). I've compared the T3i to the 60D and the T3i just feels small in my hand whereas the 60D fits well...
Good decision and great choice, the wait game can drive one nuts.
One last question, the recommended lenses included some EF and EF-S. While I know that both fit the 60D, I'm less clear on what the impacts are to the perceived focal length and/or quality. Online postings seem to be somewhat contradictory on this matter. My understanding is that pictures taken with, say, 50mm focal length EF and EF-S lenses be framed differently on an aps-c sensor (as in the 60D) versus a FF sensor. Because of this, some postings have mentioned that an EF lens on an aps-c sensor will effectively extend the reach of the lens -- turning the 50mm into a 80mm lens (1.6x crop factor).
Focal length is focal length. Just think of a APS-C camera (60D) like a 1.6 teleconvertor. On Canon's crop sensor cameras, multiple the focal length whether it is an EF-S or EF, by 1.6 to get the FF equivalent. EF-S lenses will not physically fit on a FF body and shouldn't because the FF mirror can hit the rear lens element. So buy the lens you need and want for the body you have whether it's an EF-S or EF. (In my case I have a 7D and no EF-S lens not because I'm getting ready for FF, but because I chose the best lens for my needs.)
EF lens do not resolve any less detail when used on a crop body. So don't worry about losing anything if you chose an EF over a EF-S lens. In fact if anything, a crop body can't see the edges of a EF lens (where its prone to be less sharp) like a FF can. The experts on this site can define all this much more scientifically.Typical focal lengths in FF:
24mm (15mm on a 60D) - Landscapes (obviously wider is nice too)
50mm - 135mm (31mm - 85mm on a 60D) - typical for portraits (of course any lens can be used, but outside of this range you have to be more careful of distortion)
50mm (31mm on a 60D) - normal FOV approximately what your eyes see
If you expect to get into photography seriously, and if you can, spend a little more now and get good glass. IMO, I don't like the "start out with this lens now" and then "upgrade to this lens later" strategy. Do your homework (it sounds like you have) and get what you want up front.
Buy gear incrementally. Get some experience with your body and main lens, then use that experience to choose your next lens.
