I don't get why everyone is so disappointed...
My take is, the 60D is exactly what it needs to be....
I would absolutely agree with you, in case if Canon was the only player in DSLR market.
In reality though giving out products which are exactly what they need to be, means losing competition. Because competition HAS ALREADY introduced products of lower grade which ARE mode than they need to be. Now really, what will happen to 60D sales if D7000 comes at a same price and with expected feature set?
1. First-timers: no single semi-pro body seeker will choose 60D over D7000.
2. First-timers: no single lower grade body seeker will choose Canon over Nikon, because a) they won't see which significanlty better body they can upgrade to for reasonable price; b) all the internet is already full of frustrated 60D waiting list;
3. Nikon users - no single Nikon advanced or lower user will switch to Canon for same reasons.
4. Scenario for people that have Canon already is same as always - a) Mostly high-end photographers - keep on going Canon for many reasons (body sucks - lens rules, switch is expensive and the difference doesn't matter in real life, this Nikon-Canon win&lose game will never end etc); b) Mostly below high-end photographers - switch to Nikon, because a) I want it all and I want it now! (I follow the trends, I need low light performance etc); b) I am studio photographer Canon again proves to be concentrated on sports/wildlife lenses only; c) d) e) many different reasons and different scenarios.
5. Videographers. I beleive those who are not in hurry they'll wait for D7000 to decide, but most obviously it's video will be en par with 7D, so Canon's benefit in video will be only in FF, until Nikon comes with it's version.
I beleive 60D is perfectly good camera on it's own. And it's exactly what it needs to be, unless we consider the above.
