What does everyone think of it? Anyone (apart from Chris!) managed to get their hands on one? How about that vari-angle LCD?
The one thing that has really impressed me about the 60D so far is the built-in creative filters. I love lomography so being able to shoot in a similar style on a DSLR, without lugging all my different cameras and filters around, is great! Of course, I probably wouldn't use this for professional quality images, but it should be great fun for snaps.
However, I'm in two minds about the swivelly LCD. On one hand, I went to a gig this week where I saw a photographer holding the camera high above his head, aiming vaguely in the direction of the stage and hoping that the musician was in the shot. Obviously this would be an ideal situation for the LCD to come into play and remove all the guess work. On the other hand, I am notoriously clumsy and fear that the extension of the LCD would feel unnatural and would lead to me bashing it, knocking it and possibly even snapping it off!
Chris does a great run down of all the positives and negatives of the 60D in Issue 40 of PhotoPlus, but what do you reckon?
I love my 60D and I am also looking at going to the new 6D, but I have a serious problem. I have read that none of the APS-C [EF-s] lenses will work, is this true?
