As "Focus group" already mentioned, battery life is another important factor to consider when outdoors - and here, the 60D beats the 650D/700D by miles.

Most importantly, do not rely on us posters here but try out in the shop yourself, whether you can live with the smaller viewfinder size of the 650D/700D - the difference to the 60D is really significant.

A spare battery weighs a lot less than 200g if that is the deciding factor.  I'd focus on viewfinder size, handling balance, and weather resistance as the basis of a choice.  I have an XSi, and a 17-50 f2.8 VC feels unbalanced on it.  I used a monopod when I rented a 70-200 f2.8, but I'm not sure an xxD would have felt balanced with that big hunk of glass.
