This is a truly brilliant DSLR. The excellence of the HD video experience reflects Canon's expertise in that niche, and explains why they do video better than everyone else. The camera feels good in the hand - excellent ergonomics. The metering is way better than anything you've seen in this range. If you're upgrading from a rebel you'll like the fact that you can keep all your SD cards. Some people have been harping on about the exclusion of the magnesium alloy body seen in prior XXD models. I think this is a non issue; its solid enough. Another point of criticism is the drop from 6 something fps to 5 something fps - if you're into sport and action photography this might affect you (get a 7D in which case !). The vari-angle screen isnt something that can be described - you need to use it to comprehend the extent to which this will change the way you shoot - at a very fundamental level. I love it.
My only gripe - Aperture 3 still hasn't extended RAW support to the 60D. I'm hoping that happens sooner than later.
