I don't believe the 60D was ever an upgrade choice for the 50D user, that was the 7D. I also don't believe it's a gimmick camera for more aspiring holiday snappers, it's got a lot more going for it than that. The same sensor as the 7D and Digic 4 processing for one thing. Yes there are software gimmicks in-camera but they are also available on semi-pro and pro models too.
I use the viewfinder for nearly all my shots and find it wanting but the articulated screen is a real bonus and i've used it several times for high and low angle shots and for the holiday snap self-portraits.
If turning pro I would only consider the 7D as a back-up camera, I would have to have a full frame body and not just for the resolution.
