Buying a 60D vs. a 7D?
Jun 5, 2011

I am considering buying a 60D with a 15-85 IS USM lens. There is a 7D kit available with the 28-135 IS USM for almost the same money.

Does the 7D have enough additional functions/features than the 60D has that it would be a better initial investment to live with the kit lens until I can buy a wider angle faster lens?

With the 7D I would have to get into Compact Flash memory. I like the articulating viewfinder on the 60D. I use it occasionally on my G11, but I could live without it. Primary uses will be kid's sports and concerts, both indoor and outdoor. Indoor photos with my G11 have had problems adjusting for different lighting in both manual and auto modes.

Please advise.
