EOS 60D Stock Levels Getting Low?
« on: December 23, 2012, 07:47:47 AM »
Various Reports…..
I’ve received various reports from around the globe that EOS 60D stock levels have become very low. There are reports of at least two stores saying they cannot get any more stock at all.

I have nothing to report about an imminent replacement of the 60D, but I do expect to see at least one new APS-C camera in the next month or two.

Wait... people have actually been buying the 60D??
Ok jk jk, if it weren't for the lack of AFMA I'd have one too (but only because they're dirt cheap some places).

So, a sure sign that a 70D will be announced? Or again, no one was really buying this, they had to cut the price down several stops for plenty to even get interested, and they finally gave up?

I inquired at a local camera store how much they were giving to 60ds being traded in: $399.  Going from $899 in fall to the $699 deal really killed resale value!  Oh well, here's hoping to 7d2 announcement in jan or feb
5d3 --- 60d --- 50mm-f1.8 --- 18-135mm --- 60mm macro --- 70-300is --- 100-400l --- 24-105l --- 17-40l --- 430ex ii

I guess we'll see the 70D and the 7D2 when we see them :)

I don't care at the moment as I got my 5D3...

I guess at some time I will "need" a second body. Hopefully I will be able to afford a 7d2 or something...

I was totally underwhelmed with this camera from day one. I gave my cousin tons of crap for buying it over a year ago, at this point it is ancient history.
I cant believe the 60D and 7D are still Canon's most recent and best APS-C cameras in 2013!

I went FF and never looked back... well, just a little~
There's a crop-only UWA I'd like to see if I'll ever get use out of, and if it's more sports/action I'm trying to capture and naturally the 5DII won't handle that well, then a performance crop sounds like a second body for me.
I'm fine with getting the old 5DII, but the 7D needs better ISO performance, or a 70D ?

There's definitely a new 1.6x camera coming in Jan/Feb.
The question is, which one: 70D, 7DII, or something else?

Before the 6D announcement, it looked as though the 70D was going to be a replacemenet for both the 60D and 7D.
Now it's hard to tell what Canon's plans are.

I actually really liked the 60d. I now have the 5d ii and iii. It was the first dslr I ever had and I bought it on the day it was released. The screen was amazing for video. I will eventually go back and either get another before they disappear but I am also hoping I know what either a 70d or 7d mark ii have to offer. I love the great build quality feature because my cameras see water often. But I also enjoyed the vari angle of the 60d and I have about 500gb of sd cards. I will wait to see what those two have to offer though because 1080p 60 would be worth it or even the new headphone jack. Eventually a apsc camera will be back with me but for now I am more than happy.

No, it did not.

According to what I have been told by the local camera store, the 60D was a high volume camera right up until the T4i came out, at which point sales dropped, but it still sold well. That, and the 7D prove that there is an APS-C market above the rebels.  When you look at the plummeting price of the 7D and 60D, and now at the shortage of 60D, and then look at the age of both designs, it seems logical that something new is coming. I would expect convergence.
The best camera is the one in your hands

Interesting what they said about the t4i. I would've suspected the opposite - with the T4i release price being fairly close to the lowered 60D price, I would've thought most people would've gone for the 60D.

It would be great to finally see an updated APS-C sensor. No added pixels, just a total refresh so we're not using 4-year old designs when there's been so much improvement in sensitivity, read out speed, DR, etc.

60D's a great little all-rounder.  Along w 40D, this is my favorite Canon body.
with a 15-85mm on it, it's my first choice for one-camera solution to most (of my) uses.
Wish it had more tactile buttons on it tho, hard to use them with gloves.

I dont care anymore as I got the 5D3. However, if they don't release 70D and the 7D and a 700D they are in hot water...
I am not even talking of the large megapix camera...
