Oh ya it'll be quite an upgrade. Especially at higher ISO levels. You can shoot pretty clean files at 3200. A lot of used 60Ds are showing up for sale now (not cause they're bad, just cause they were too new before). I like to crop a lot so the 18mp helps. You can pick up a used T2i for about 300 less than a used 60D and it'll give you the same image quality, same with that of a 7D. Just less features and smaller body. I don't mind buying camera equipment used if they have low actuations/use and still in warranty. You can get refurbs at awesome prices too through the Canon Loyalty Program (only available in the US). All you do is mail in an old canon camera of any kind, broken or working and they'll give you a big discount. If you don't have one you can probably buy one on craigslist or ebay for 10 dollars.

They aren't offering the 60D yet but I'm sure they will soon.
