"With the 60D Canon has unashamedly moved the X0D range out of the 'semi pro' bracket and instead focused on the enthusiast photographer looking to upgrade from their Rebel. As a result, it's not the obvious continuation of the 30D - 40D - 50D pattern that its naming might suggest. Instead it sits pretty well precisely in the same market position as was once-upon-a-time occupied by the 'Elan' series of 35mm film SLRs (which in Europe were not-so-coincidentally given double-digit model numbers)."
Despite the doom and gloom behind the 60D's downgrade, DPReview found it a pretty compelling camera, especially those looking to upgrade from a 550D and not wanting to spend too much. I know a couple of people who'd have been pleased if this came out when they were looking to upgrade!
