Please define "mispositioned buttons". What exactly is a "mispositioned button" layout?
A "mispositioned" for you may be "satisfyingly positioned" for another.

Seem to me that since the OP asked 'how do you like your 60d" if you don't have one you aught not to reply.

Well, I had one and I liked it so much as to dispose of it - so my opinion is valid even in this context. I in fact am less biased as those that have one as their only DSLR at this point in time - they have decided to use this camera for whatever reason and to admit that they made a wrong choice or that the camera isn't perfect may well be beyond them.

I still have (with the exception of the 30D and one of my 40Ds) all my DSLRs that I ever bought - and the 60D with it's inferior memory card interface, mispositioned buttons, heavy reliance on menus, mushy 8-way-controller without tactile feedback, overcrowded right hand side, too small thumb rest and overall misformed (not just my opinion, quite a few of my real life friends are of this opinion) hand grip didn't even cut it to be bought at all, I had one on loan that I could have kept for a modest price - but with all these drawbacks the thought never crossed my mind.

If I wanted a light camera the 550D would be better, if I wanted a workhorse I could rely on the 7D is the way to go (which I got the day it was released)...

I'm still looking for a good camera to replace the 50D for my wife, she tried the 60D and the 7D - now I am on the lookout for a second 7D - even she (who always is looking for a light, small camera) didn't like the 60D one iota.
