The new Canon EOS 60D is now available in the UK. Costing £869 inc. VAT for the body, it lies between the 550D and the 7D in Canon's range. The 17-85mm Lens Kit costs £1148 inc. VAT.

Reviews are generally positive, with www.dpreview.com commenting "from a spec and feature point of view it sits almost exactly half-way between the EOS 550D and the EOS 7D, which is exactly where it should be."

Some reviewers have remarked on the fact that Canon have dropped the magnesium alloy construction and so this is more of an enthusiast's DSLR rather than a semi-pro. However, it remains very capable of producing excellent results with lots of features that will appeal especially to anyone looking to upgrade from the EOS 400/450D specification but who can't afford the EOS 7D or the EOS 5D.
