I love my 60D, and am considering upgrading to a 6D or 7D MKII (if it ever appears). But the build quality and 'creakiness' of the 60D still bug me a bit. The top dial feels very cheap, like it could break at any time. It likely won't, but I'm just saying the feel of the camera leaves something to be desired. And while that does not affect image quality, it does have an impact on the overall experience while out doing photoshoots.

Anyway, rather than upgrade this year i've decided to get a good pano head for my tripod. That, and maybe a new lens, will undoubtedly have a bigger impact on my photography.

top mode dial of the 70d feels even cheaper ..check it out.. almost like a toy... I like my 60d's mode dial even with the lockout that I got used to...  still don't need that 'articulated LCD'.. for me it's a total waste.. never use it... and as for video..  don't need it..don't want it in a DSLR so the 70d doesn't sell it to me no matter how good canon makes the video...

my Canon 60d sure beats using that ol' Petri 7s
