I've read the review, but still can't choose to buy 60d or 50d
I recently upgraded from 350D. I had the same decision to make. The 60D won. i am very happy with it. I was even considering the 7D, but for my needs, the extra cash wasn't justified. No real life advantages, despite all they say. I'm not shooting sports, etc...
My advice, go and test them both. See how they feel in u're hand...very important. For me, the 60D felt better. I have small hands
). And it's lighter. I don't realy need the magnesium body, cause i don't plan to smash it against walls. And the tilt screen is very helpfull. As for the video part, it's better to have it...u never know.
As for the optical part, the 60D, in my opinion, and from what the tests show, it's better than the 50D. High ISO performance is better. They all say u need quality glass. Well...with my 50 1.8 and my 70-200 L, i have no problems
Finally, it is you who will decide. Either one it's a great camera, and from my perspective, in real life, the optical differences aren't noticeable. So, again, go and see how they both feel, and consider the other advantages/disadvantages.
