...I run two checks:

  • first on 1Dx-5Dx forum:

  • and then a sudden spate of activity, rather recent on 10D-60D-7d:

most of which in the same rather obsessive vein like we witness here,
pretty strange, and perhaps telling,

Think this guy has an axe to grind? It appears he sure does love his 60D. No dount it's a very nice camera but to say the 7D is not worthy of the additional $$ is pretty shallow IMO.

I considered the 60D as a backup to my 7D and could get by with the more limited AF for backup but the lack of AF-MA ruled it out. Virtually all my long glass requires some adjustment which means the 60D would have a very limited usefulnesss for me. It's too bad Canon decided to dumb the 60D down in this respect.
