More thoughts on the 60D

If the 60D arrives this August I for one would love it to have the features of the Nikon D90 in a larger XXD metal body 12+ megapixels and the video capability of the 7D though I most likely wouldn't use this feature. The megapixel wars are a con came thought up by marketing departments to sell cameras (More is Better). Nikon I believe reached a balance between the number of megapixels and the size of the CMOS sensor.
I am a Canon Shooter using a pair of 1DMark's. I'm looking for another camera to use in my studio because Canon Management for what ever reason decided not to support my cameras under Windows 7 64bit. I use tethered capture 100% in my studio.

I posted something in response to your other comment...have you looked into Capture One? They have a free trial, you should give it a shot and see if it will work for you.

Depending on how big your studio is, stepping down to an aps-c sensor could be a pain as it will make your lenses not appear as wide. Might be worth it to consider a newer 1D, or a 5D mkII, or even an old 1DS (if any of those work). It might make your studio feel less cramped if you are tight on room. In one of the smaller studios I worked in, I hated shooting the 20D but loved shooting the 5D. Would have not been as big of a deal in a bigger studio. Just something to consider :)

Also depends on the lense he owns, doesn't it?

Yeah, that is true. I was just saying that it would be different. At the very least it would require some getting used to and at the worst they might not be able to do certain wide angle shots that they could before. This happened to me...our studio went from Kodak 560/760s to Canon 20Ds and it took us a bit to get used to the new gear and on occasion we couldn't do some stuff we wanted to (bought a wider angle lens later though :) ). Working in a studio you quickly get into routine and it can be difficult to have to change stuff (on the other hand, it can also be good as it breaks you out of the routine...sometimes you need that too ;) )
