What DSLR should I buy?
Sep 18, 2012

Hello all,

I'm pretty much a beginner, I never had a DSLR before but I read a lot about how to use them and what to look out for.

The problem currently is that I'm not sure if I should wait for the Canon EOS 70D(if there will be one) or I should buy the 60D instead.

From the rumors the 70D looks much better to me(alone the body material) but as it seems it'll take a while until it'll be announced(if at all).

So the camera is supposed to be used for landscape, architecture and motorsports photography and some portraits(mostly not).
My budget for the camera body alone is about 900€.
So what to do? Wait or buy the 60D?
Or some other?

What would be important to me is a relativly good noise level and a good image resolution, the burst rate should also be somewhat close or above 5fps, a fast AF wouldn't be bad too.

Thanks in advance!
