Canon News: EOS 60D released

Canon have finally released the replacement to the Canon 50D, in the form of the 60D.  It's trying to squeeze inbetween some very similar siblings in the 550D and 7D - and borrows features from both. 

Features include:
  • 18 MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • Advanced creative features
  • Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 ratio LCD
  • Full HD movies
  • DIGIC 4
  • ISO 100-6400, H:12800
  • 5.3fps shooting for up to 58 JPEGs
  • 9-point cross type AF System
  • iFCL metering with 63-zone Dual-layer Sensor 

Unfortunately, it looks like the featureset does NOT include weather-sealing, or a magnesium body (it's plastic).  There's also no micro AF lens adjustment, although it's possible it will be included in revised firmware before its launched, as people are rightly kicking-up a fuss that it isn't included. 

Here it can be ordered, or price compared to its nearest siblings:
