60D the material of the body is plastic right?

7D is magnesium?

i prefer go to 7D than 60D if the material of the body still plastic :)

of the 3, i think i will go for 3) but i got 2) instead cos i figured i want the reach more.

i gonna replace the kit lens soon, so doesnt matter much really.

in a nutshell if you like:

-swivel screen - go 60D
-weighty magnesium alloy body - go 7D
-fast frame rates - go 7D
-a lower price but willing to sacrifice some features - go 60D

anyway, what are you using now?

prolly a tamron 17-50 vc

usually i would advise upgraders of the same camp to go 7D and first time owners to go 60D.

but for you, you are switching camp, so i aint too sure either.

actually it all depends on whether you really need those extra goodies that is found on a 7D.... most of which I suppose are not required by many.... if you need them then it will be a 7D without a doubt... else get a 60D body... then coupled it with a lens of your choice...

what is the significant diff bout 7D and 60D? is 60D weather sealed????
oh and i wanna ask what is the pro and cons of 15-85 and 18-135?? since both their aperture is not constant i guess is just the reach? am i right?

Haha, guess u r really wrecked....Why dont you go to the shops and have a feel of both cams and understand more on each specs before you decide? Better still, if you have friends who have either cams, go loan from them to shoot. See what suits you best. ;)

think the main differences could be found here...

15-85 is a higher grade lens as compared to the 18-135... so you can be sure the IQ(sharpness, colors, bokeh etc) will be better... it has an extra 3mm on the wide end... and of course has USM.... I believe the IS system is the same: both up to 4 stops (someone correct me if I am wrong)...
