1st, great review Gordon!

Tried the 60D today, the lock button on the mode dial SUCKS, luv the feel/texture of the body, the lighter weight, button layout and the new tilt screen, but no sale...guess I'll keep shootin with my 40D and save for the next 5D upgrade...

Plez Canon sans the lock button, DO NOT ENHANCE, your semi-pro and pro models with this BS feature. You just prevented a disabled photographer (whose been a loyal Canon shooter since 1978...yeah 32 years!) from enjoying/using a very promising camera...your keen idea FAILS, shame on you...what a bunch of crap! I'm not bitter, can you tell...had a feeling this would happen...damn it!

And what lenses? Some were shown but some others probably not. :roll:

amatuerphotographer has just completed their review of the 60D: http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/eq ... =&offset=0

Scores:
•Features - 8/10
•Build and Handling - 9/10
•White balance and Colour - 9/10
•Metering - 8/10
•Autofocus - 8/10
•Noise, Resolution and Sensitivity - 28/30
•Dynamic range - 8/10
•Viewfinder, LCD, Live View and Video - 8/10
Tested as: Enthusiast DSLR
Rated: Very good
Overall score: 86%

...seems like Gordon got it right with his rating of 87% :wink:

"With an 18-million-pixel CMOS sensor and a street price that should soon drop below £1,000, the Canon EOS 60D has the potential to be the best enthusiast DSLR camera on the market today. "

amatuerphotographer has just completed their review of the D7000 and it rates 1% less than the 60D: http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/eq ... _12158.php

Scores:
•Features - 8/10
•Build and Handling - 9/10
•White balance and Colour - 9/10
•Metering - 8/10
•Autofocus - 8/10
•Resolution, Noise and Sensitivity - 27/30
•Dynamic range - 8/10
•Viewfinder, Live View, LCD and Video - 8/10
Tested as: Enthusiast DSLR
Rated: Very good
Overall score: 85%

Funny thing is that they score the 60D that 1% higher than the D7000 in the category that it should be beaten "Resolution, Noise and Sensitivity". Also, they score the 550D 27/30 for the same category. Can the 60D rate higher with the same sensor?

...I can't wait for Gordon's review and comparison.

BTW, photographyblog has reviewed the 60D and D7000 and rated them the same (both Highly Recommended) http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/ ... 0d_review/ & http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/ ... 00_review/

Hi. I'm considering the 60D as my first DSLR, but there are just a few things I'm curious about. Any help would be appreciated.

For one, I know the T2i has an eye sensor that blacks out the screen when you look through the viewfinder, but it appears as though the 60D does not. If this is true, do you find it distracting?

Secondly, I was considering purchasing the Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM Zoom (not to be confused with the more expensive macro lens) over the 18-135 kit lens. Would this be a good idea?

The 60D has a top LCD to display shooting info so the rear screen is off normally during shooting.

Hi Gordon, thanks for the in-depth review of the 60D. Do you also plan to produce a video review? Many thanks.

Thanks Gordon for all your great reviews.
i want to buy a camera and i m not sure what should i buy. Price of the 60D is in my limit, so i dont want to pay %50 more for a better camera like D700 .
i want to ask you a question, und please let me understand better. 60D vs D90 you gave specification point 19 point for D90 (may be i should think about the years 2008 and 2010) and 17 for 60D. And image quality is the same. So if you would give points again in 2010, would you give better points than 60D ? Or for Image quality, can you say no big difference between 60D and D90 ?

i want to shoot very sharpe photos for example at night 24 oclock Golden brigde with all the lights or a sunset. I want a camera for the situations that you cant take perfect photos with a bridge or compakt camera. Could you give me an answer ? Is 60D enough for that ?
Thank you again.

In this light you should use a tripod anyway so about every DSLR can be used with low ISO and so the image quality will be fine.

The point in this case is the lens you use - especially for bridges you might want / need a (super) wide angle lens.

Thanks Jiko for your answer. As i see, you have eos 500d and many lenses.i know that even the kit lens of the 550d is not good enough. but could you tell me, if you have tried, with 500D kit 18-55 lens how was the resault of an evening shoot ?
Gordon says in a review Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II ideal choice for portrait and low-light photography on a budget. So do you think is enough ?
and i dont understand something from wide angel lenses. i thouht, Focal length: 10-22mm is not wide angel because it is 22mm. But it is in "Recommended Canon wide-angle lenses for landscape and architectural photography " lenses section ! So i m now confused :shock:

P.s. i still hope, that Gordon will answer my question about the point, that he gaves.
