It s really hard to beat the canon eos 7d.
I bought an 60d for a an upgrade for my missed rebel XTI.
I liked the 60d, it comes with terrific features specially the swivel screen great for some movie shooters and many more, unfortunatly i am not in videography, i don't really care about the swivel screen, i was about to buy a 50d, but a 60d comes out, i said no the eos 60d will succeed the 50D, and it has almost the same sensor to the 7d and has nice features.
I used it for two months because i bought it on november 2010 the day of my birthday, i liked it and gave me good results, unfortunatly there were something i didn't like on the 60d and as an canon Fanboy it s an big downgrade from the EOS 50D, the plastic body makes the hardware cheap and too light, it stays between the T2I and the 7D, bigger than the T2I and smaller the the 7D, but has a good grip, but i don't feel it ergonomically, the build quality is supposed to stay like at least the 50D or the 5d Mark II
because Build quality is very important on DSLR, thew 7D is strong, rugged, weather sealed, 7D is even more strong heavier (820G Body only) than 5D mArk2(810G body only) and 50D, the 60D frames rates is awesome, 5D mark II is sad just it's full frame and has more Mega pixels and lack the built of Pop up flash, 50D is a terrific ergonomically, and the frames rates of the 50D is happy, I love shooting action, so i need the huge frames rate, i love a heavy camera but not like the eos 1DS MII or IV ...Seriously I am not rich but i don't have financial issues, i can even purchsase EOS 1DS Mark III, i already returned the canon eos 60D, the same day before i go to bed i gotta purchase an eos the store are open in NYC on sunday.
I gotta choose between 5D Mark II and 7D, seriously the 50D is awesome but it going to be archaic soon.
5D Mark II is terrific but the frames rates is slow, i don't care about it's full frame and it's 21 MP, and doesn't have built on pop up flash, it;s more friendly in studio, i gotta shoot outside a lot, i can see some wildlifes, lanscape, actions in the street of NYC,so the 7d can do the job done, it's one of the best canon eos timelines, built quality is superior, rugged, and weather sealed, I already have it, i am thinking getting another one for a back up body.
