This seems to have become a debate about the 7D now, but as a 60D owner I will risk sticking my neck out here. I cut my teeth on a 30-yr old fully manual Pentax K1000 film camera and have not felt the need or desire to upgrade to digital until the usual labs started screwing up my prints due to old chemicals and inexperience.
60D is my first purchase and I'm delighted with it. Its ergonomic, intuitive and has already been traveling all over with me. The screen is useful and quite sturdy, I never use the HD except right at the start due to novelty, the filters are fun but I do most of my processing on computer. My only issue is finding the autofocus fractionally too slow for aussie birds sitting in eucalyptus leaves, but as I'm used to manual focus this is't a problem for me. Being relatively new to such luxury I assume its no worse than other autofocus drives.
I'm no pro photographer but I find the 60D gives me full creative licence, excellent quality and enough room to grow. This is my investment for the next innings of camera evolution. Next step is an upgrade away from kit lenses.
