What are the limitations you find in your 60D? If you don't find any limitations, then there is no need for you to change your camera body.

Oh.. So you just want to change a new body just for the sake of an upgrade.. If thats the case..then 7D is an upgrade from 60D..likewise for the other more expensive ones such as 5D..1D..

cheers.. Canon loves you to bits.

5D mk II

60D to 7D gives u no gain in portraits and landscape.
Neither camera will gain in portraits/landscape unless one needs to make very big prints. 60D is more than enough for any shoots imho.

The main advantage you will get from 7d over 60d is af system and higher burst speed.
If you don't shoot sports, birds, wildlife or fast action stuff, you should forget it and go for 5d mk2.

ya 60D is excessively enough for TS, with only 8 mths of experiene.

also dont forget 5Dmk2's noise performance. Larger sensor for OOF effect for portraits. Larger dynamic range for landscape. all these got too good for TS.

happy new yr to TS. i wont come back and read this meanless thread again.

First of all... what do you find lacking in 60D? I mean, both 60D and 7D shared the same sensor, 7D had good weather seal body, is heavier and is faster, it also has some small little improvement, but 60D is no slacker too. 60D's movie mode is pretty good and on par or better than the 7D, its vari-LCD is incredible for many different type of shots.

If you sold your camera just because you think you want an upgrade... I think that is a very very wrong move... you must know what you really don't like about 60D or what it was limiting you before you know what to upgrade to. Because 7D is just like the 60D plus a few more capabilities.

It's the end of yr bonus that he need to spend, or else next yr budgeting will get less money. Just go ahead and hoot a 5Dmk2. Won't go wrong. But all ur EF-S lens can also be post on BnS le.

Use the money you got from selling your 60D to buy some other body. Unless you really want to upgrade to 7D.

For your information, some photographers use their cameras for years, what's months to them? If you can get another 60D at the price you are offering, then that will be good. Otherwise, upgrade if you have the cash, if not then downgrade?

Just don't think too much. Before you make any decision next time, think and do some research on the model you are looking at and the current model that you have. And see what you are lacking in the model. Otherwise you will be wasting your money.

Cheers! Enjoy your weekends!
