5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!, 17 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera (Inc EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens Kit) (Electronics)
Have had this camera for a few weeks now and all I can say is WOW! Everything is so easy to use, the flip out screen makes taking awkward shots incredibly easy and the level of manual control is amazing! In addition, the whole feel of the body, from the grips, to the balance and general handling are superb!

The EF-S 17-85mm IS USM lens is also a fantastic product, the range it gives really allows for a wide variety of shots. I was concerned with the supposed barrel distortion at the wide angle range, but after taking a few shots with it I have found it is not as pronounced as I thought it might be.

Lastly, the video is also as excellent as has been reported, images recorded at either 1080p25 or 720p50 are clear and crisp through the kit lens. However should you wish for a softer, more "cinematic" image, the extensive range of 'Prime' lenses available from Canon (or lots of other lens manufacturers via lens adapters) are at your disposal.

I would highly recommend this camera to anyone looking to move a step up from an entry level DSLR (like the 550D or D3100) and doesn't feel the need to shell out for the 7D as, to be honest, the rewards gained by moving up to that level aren't enough to justify the cost.

I agree totaly with your review, just sold my 550d and bought the 60d - it's a great camera and I love the in camera RAW editing and creative filters, I also could not justify a 7d as it's heavier and I do not need a faster burst rate
Cheers
