biggest difference: ergonomics

I agree. The grip alone makes the 60D worth it.

Ergonomics are better on the 60D, but only if you're looking for a mid-sized camera.  The big difference in my mind is the pentaprism viewfinder in the 60D that is not only bigger, but brighter as well.  The dual control dials on the 60D are also a good reason to upgrade.  The higher burst FPS is also a benefit, but not everyone is looking for how fast the continuous is.

Slight high price, but it's worth

Top LCD (Low Power) ,don't bother using all confusing menu.
1100 shots battery life.

Other advantages are mentioned above. I am happy with it, I bought 60D over 550D. And there is not much of difference in 550 and 600, Go with 60D it's worth spending little more.

I have a 60D and a Rebel XSi and I have used my nephew's T2i, and I vote for the 60D, particularly if the rebates for the 60D reduce the price below the current $888 price at B & H, Amazon, and Adorama. I like both the Rebels a lot, but the 60D has a more substantial build, feels better in the hand, and is overall more pleasurable to use that my XSi. In fact, I am thinking of selling my XSi and getting a second 60D.
That said, I have not seen or used the T3i, but I still expect the 60D to be a bit better and worth the extra money.

Go for the 7D ! I should have waited for it instead of buying the 50D, I still regret that...

On the other hand, whilst the 60D sits better in the hand, it is a bit heavier than the 600D. And the Live View mode autofocus on 600D is reportedly faster.

By the way, what is the point of the top display on the 60D? When is it of use?



PS: "defiantly"? Whom do you plan to defy?

If you are using manual modes Av, Tv, and M, the top LCD is really handle to see your settings without having to purposely turn on the screen (or leave it on, wasting battery power) or look through the view finder to see your settings.

Before I got a 7D, I didn't think the top LCD was a big deal, but I find that I use it constantly every time I use the camera

All the time.

I own 20D, and before that, used a 500N (a film camera) which explains my behaviour. But to have large, power-consuming LCD just to change settings is nonsensical to me.
Trusty 20D, a lighter 200, a nifty fifty, and an old Sigma that won't work stopped down.

i believe (i read it somewhere) the 60D also has a bigger buffer. so you could shoot more before it stop.

It's the same 15 RAWs I believe. But the 7D will reach that 15 faster with the 8fps.
Both can do Jpegs until you get board basically.

to me its not about the power use of the LCD so much, more just the fact that its easier to glance at the top display, and its always on, always shows exactly what you want (and expect)...

the 350d i had previously had a tiny display on the back.. that sucked.

I still have a 350D and having played with a 60D in a shop I have to agree with you about the 350D's diminutive display.
