I am considering taking the plunge into the DSLR realm. I thought, Hang the bulkiness! And now I'm thinking whether the Canon 60D is going to fit my value-for-money criteria. Previously I was only considering full-frame, the 5D-2 being the only almost affordable model. Trouble is by the time I could afford it the camera would be much older than it is now.
But about the 60D, I have read that it does not have micro-adjust focusing but that this is a firmware option. How important is this feature, and would its lack be fixed with an eventual firmware upgrade?
Secondly, what part of the Canon 7D makes it so fast in operation? Is it both lens and body? Or are the lenses alone the main driver? The two cameras have similar focusing functions according to DP Review.
And then, does 1920x1080 for movie mode mean Progressive in both the 7D and the 60D?
Essentially, what would you be missing on the 60D that the 7D has?
If it's of any help here are two links to the specs pages of DP Review for each camera.
