I am wondering how much better the STM really is for video and continuous AF during videos.

For the 60D, which is the topic of this thread, its a non-issue since the 60D does not support continuous AF with video.

I know I'm replying to an old post, but this actually isn't strictly true.

You can use the AF-On button on a 60D to continuously focus while in video mode, and you can do it with any lens, not just an STM lens (I've done it with my USM lenses). It isn't very smooth, it hunts a lot, and with a USM lens it's quite noisy, but it does sort of work (it will eventually find the right focus).
