Another reason is Amazon is sold out of the camera, and Newegg had it on sale with the kit lens for $1350 (d7000), so I was thinking it might go on sale again perhaps. I did go to a best buy and play with them a bit locally and they both feel pretty decent in my hands the 60d and d7000 that is. The Nikon did feel like it would be a bet bitter quality for the exterior, however I did like the locking dial on the 60d.
What do you guys think of the kit lens that comes with the d7000 vs. the kit lens that comes with the 60d? It may come down to comparing the 35mm 1.6 or 2.6 primes and a few other lenses i might eventually want and quality/price of those.
