    You really need to try them out for yourself to make a decision. Don't let others influence you too much.
    Ergonomics are quite different. Chances are you'll prefer one over the other.

    on paper..D7000 seems alot more superior, but practically not much differences.

    i love the specs on the D7000 though, however ergonomics (should be grip) wise, 60D is light years ahead lol. oh i need to add that it's my personal opinion.

    really?
    As a d7k user you feel that way?



    I would tend to disagree with you on that. Somehow I still prefer the feel of the Nikon grip and button/dials layout.
    Everyone has their own preference I suppose.

    I don't see how the 60D's ergonomics is light years ahead of D7000. There are reviews that say the back dial hurts your hands, the D-pad thing is too small and you don't know if you press it, etc etc. Ergonomics are subjective, some people will prefer Nikon's designs, some Pentax, some Canon, some Sony etc etc. Just have to try out yourself.

    After reading up on the specs and the rough pricing of the camera models, I suggest you make a visit down the shops and try them hands on

    Keep thinking, add "reading reviews" and "understanding technical terms", add "going to showrooms and have hands-on feeling session", remove "ask others to do what they have done".

    In terms of Engineering design, both have its pros and cons. Nikon spent more time and effort in ensuring its DSLR takes into account handling ergonomics which explains why the buttons and dials are in the right places. There is of course a small percentage of palms that are too big or too small to fit comfortably.

    Canon is not too far behind in its ergonomic design but the placement of buttons and dials are not inituitive nor is it placed in the right places which then force you to use more than just a thumb and first finger.

    Although different models of comparison, i have tried my friend's 7D for comparison in handling against my D90, and i would say i still prefer the 2-dial set-up of nikon esp when shooting in manual mode. Different people, different preferences. So ergonomics-wise, i suggest you get some "hands-on" experience with both models (60D and D7000) coz ultimately it will be YOUR hands that will hold the camera.

    true.

    button/dials layout i would prefer nikon's, but for the grip, i would think that the canon's 60D is alot better. i've tried my friend's 60D almost everyweek, mounted with 24-70 f2.8 n 70-200, while mine is mounted with nikkor's equivalent. so this is my personal conclusion.

    i always think that all nikon's DSLR are better than canon in terms of ergonomics, but for once, i feel that 60D's grip is alot more comfortable than D7000's esp on heavier lens. of cuz it's a different story for D300s, D700 and D3s. i wish nikon has a D300s grip design for D7000 lol.
