Thanks. The most important thing is that I wanted a bigger, heavier, stronger body. The 60D (although not as tough as its predecessor, from what I read) feels nice and heavy; gives me more control or a more secure feeling. I've always enjoyed shooting with my 350D (Rebel something in the US?), but this one feels much better. I think I'm going to have to find a body I can play around with. I like stronger bodies but as I travel a lot I don't want a camera weighing me down.
