Amazon Germany offers the 60d for 750 EUR (Canon offers also an additional 50 EUR cashback). Amazon marks the 60d as a disontinued item, unlike the 7d - which keeps me thinking if we'll see a 700d/70d before the 7d successor...

Nope, Canon just wants to prevent having a stock of unsellable 60d next to a stock of outdated 7d1 when the 7d2 (or will it be called 70d? or...?) is announced. The 7d1 will probably replace the 60d as the budget option until then, while the 650d has some features the 60d doesn't have (lv af, touchscreen).

MediaMarkt (biggest electronicstore in Europe) dropped (in 48 hours) from 939 to 729,- with canon-cashback you're looking at a price of 679,- euro's . But...every year in january they have an "taxfree sale". In The Netherlands the tax on electronics is 21%, every year the MediaMarkt holds a sale and gives 21% discount on everything in the megastores. So in the 3rd week of january 2013 the price of the 60D in The Netherlands will be: 729 x 0,79% = 575,91 - 50,00 = 525,91...talking about making a good deal.
