When I saw the negative reviews of the Canon EOS 60D then I debated whether I should purchase that or the 7D. Now that I have had some time to use the 60D I can say honestly that I am happy with the purchase. In fact, I am glad that I did not purchase the 7D.
The 7D and 60D are for two different crowds of buyers. The 60D has automated scene modes which I used in the past on the T2i. I love the scene modes because I do not always desire to set everything manually. There are occasions where I am out and simply want the camera to do the work. There are many options on the 60D that are not on the 7D. When I had the T2i, I had to download the photos to the computer and use a seperate program to manipulate or resize the photos. However, the 60D does have the ability for basic post-processing. I love these new features because I do not enjoy post-processing. Its time consuming. I would just like to pop in the card and upload right away. The articulating screen has proved very useful too.
The 7D is a pureist camera with no automated scene modes. It is designed for someone to shoot, download to the computer and then manipulate with Photoshop. The 7D is much faster, but the 60D is fairly fast. The 60D can fire off 1 picture every 15-20 milliseconds where as the 7D is like every 10-15 milliseconds.
I have not needed the "microadjust" feature that is absent on the 60D. My Canon 17-55 seems to focus very well with no issues.
