More pics.

Need to find the time to read through the manual and figure out all the cool features.

First of all, this is a great thread . . . Just what I was looking for. Does anyone have any experience with the 7D vs. the 60D? I have a Canon A2e from my newspaper days and have only had a point and shoot since leaving the business. I am looking to get back into photography with something comparable to what I had back in the film days. I have a nice Speedlite and a few EF lenses that appear to be compatible.

Thanks All!

If you can swing it, I'd add the 6D to your consideration list.

60D, according to reports, is nearly extinct. I think they aren't making anymore. That is why there are good deals around. 60D and 7D are very similar with the exception of build, speed, and auto focus differences.

Supposedly a 70D is in the works as well as a 7D Mk II or something like that.

Even as a 40th birthday gift I think the 6D is going to be a stretch!

The 7D is still a better all around camera than the 60D in terms of features. dpreview.com has some great comparison tools if you want to look close at that. The sensor is nearly the same though, so image quality wise they're very close. Now... the T4i is a freaking awesome little camera. A lot of people shy away from the Rebels but if I were buying crop sensor right now I'd skip the 60D and the 7D for the T4i. While it doesn't quite have the 7D's zillion point auto focus system, it does have a newer sensor design and will auto focus with video using STM lenses. There's other features that to me make it a better camera to go with at this moment in time and again, dpreview.com has the rundown on that. But in the end it's you shopping and not me, so you have to weigh all the features/price/size yourself.

The EF lenses should work fine as long as they are Canon lenses. There are some issues with old third party lenses not working with newer cameras. There are voltage issues with older speedlites that can, over time, damage DSLR's. I'd research and make sure the particular speedlite you have is safe.

Great idea. I guess I have some more research ahead of me.
