DPReview shows a price of €1149,-. This is €50,- less than the cheapest price of a 7D in the Netherlands today.

I do wonder who would not pay the €50,- extra?

Again I really don't understand why it is priced approx €300,- more expensive in Europe than in the US.

Please excuse my ignorance, but do you know about how much that 50 is in us dollars?  If it is really close then I agree...not sure why anyone would buy the 60D instead of the 7D.  In the US here, when I checked the pricing, the 7D is still about $400 more than the 60D.  That is a more substantial gap (at least for me ;) )

Oh man, are you kidding me?  That is nothing!  If that is the gap, I would get a 7D all the way.  For $400 I will consider a lower model but for $63...well, I can't speak for anyone else, but I sure wouldn't consider the 60D.

So I guess this is Canon's move to push the fence-sitters into action - live with the 60D, forget about it and grab the 7D, or go for the D7000.

I guess now we have the split of pro level (1D-line), prosumer (5D, 7D), and consumer (60D, 550D, and 1000D). As for the next step, my guess would be the canceling of the 1000D (or better, stick the EVIL here)

I am about to shoot myself. In Austria where I am from, the 7D costs 1250€. The 60D costs 1150€. Plain sick. How ever, I have the great luck to live in Canada now and can pay an extra 400€ for the 7D here. What a S___. >:(

I hate Canon for this retarded 60D

Sounds like Nikon looked at what Canon had (Canon EOS 7D) and designed the D7000, and Canon looked at what Nikon had (Nikon D90) and designed the EOS 60D.

But Canon was probably not anticipating that the D7000 by the looks of it is actually replacing the D300s and going to compete with the Canon EOS 7D and now Canon EOS 60D aswell!

That said, as many others, I am dissapointed but not entirely surprised by this 60D.

Lowering the fps is probably due to that a single Digic IV can't do better than this with that amount of data.
Microadjustment is pretty useless and will do more harm than good. So I can understand why they removed it.
Plastic body, they looked at D90 I would think and got rid of the Mg body. BIg dissapointment unless the plastic quality is phenomenal, which the T2i is far from and reaches poor quality IMO.


By the way, I have been a bit out of the loop regarding Nikon, but we know for sure that AF in video mode is much faster now? And how did they fix that issue? no Contrast detection AF anymore? I understand how SONY did it with their extra sensor part for AF, did Nikon do the same?

I didn't see prices for the 60D in our shops yet, but if the €1149,- is true, they won't sell a lot since the 7D is €1199,- (in US$: 60D for 1455,- and 7D for 1518,-).

Since the 550D is priced €632,- (US$ 800,-) I think the price of the 60D will drop very soon, but still I won't buy it.

So our fears confirmed, whilst other innovate, us canon users get a flippy plastic screen and some in camera software filters, and the speed lite control. This camera is not aimed at upgraders at all, its more of a higher quality entry camera with bells and whistles  :-(
Compact flash is dead then.
£1200 - Canon EOS 60D + EF-S 18-55mm
£200 - new battery grip

Yes its better than my 400D but not enough better!
Now waiting for some 60D vs D95 reviews.....

Been waiting for this one for a long time. To be honest, a bit disappointed, but I still think it'll be a hell of a camera.

mmm.... interesting....

The battery for the 60D is LP-E6, the one for 7D and 5D2. This might explain why 60D can last 1,100 shots compared to 7D's 640 shots.

For a comparison of 60D/50D/550D/7D, check the chart at the bottom of this Japanese article: http://dc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/20100826_389278.html

At least that's one saving grace ::)

Lol, seriously, why? It's basically the 550D. One must be pretty dumb to spend an extra 400$ just for a flipscreen.

They really must have been high when developing the 60D. Such a useless piece of junk.
I don't get why there are still ppl. who see anything good about it? It has a flipscreen ok, but this is just a feature that would have made the camera awesome instead of just nice if it had what a usual xxD would have. But now with only having a flipscreen it's worthless.

I'd be mostly interested in if they've been able to get rid of that awful banding visible in high-ISO shots with the 50D and 5D mkII. They've fixed it in the 7D, which was the major reason I upgraded up to it from the 50D. I'm very happy with the 7D sensor, very well behaved compared to the 50D. For the same reason I'm not going FF until 5D mkIII, where I hope they'll also have fixed the banding and AF issues.
