Okay, I'm in a conundrum. One which lots of people here are probably also experiencing, especially today.
Should I get the 60D (used @ $799 from Canon's used store), get the T4i/650D @ $849, or hold out a couple of months (or probably more) for the 70D?
My only camera, apart from my phone, is an SX10IS, which my cousin calls a "baby-SLR." I love it, but my experience with it has made me loathe poor low light performance with a vengeance. However, I don't know how big of a difference a new sensor will really make, and the 70D will probably be priced out of my range anyway, so that's kind of a reach.
As I understand it, the T4i and 60D are practically identical in performance now, with only a few differences between them. Do the T4i's new features (DIGIC 5, touchscreen, stereo sound) make up for losing the 60D's top LCD, better constructed body, and better battery life?
I'll probably be shooting 75% stills (probably all in RAW+JPEG Fine), 25% video, mainly of family events (35%) and landscapes (65%).
If it makes a difference, the lenses on my current shopping list are the 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM and the 50mm f/1.8.
