The double-digit numbers have traditionally belonged to Canon's semi-pro DSLR line-up, which offer features from the pro cameras at a lower price than a pro body.
That tradition came into question with the launch of the Canon 7D late in 2009 though, the 7D represented a new category of pro-camera which sandwiched the double-digit 50D and the higher-end 5D Mark II. That probably explains some of the consumer-centric changes which have been made to the 60D as it succeeds the 50D. Now is this a good thing or bad thing? It really depends on which fence of the consumer/pro field you're sitting on, and, as usual, read on to discover why.
