I see you mention the Sony A580. Do you have any plans to review this model?

Available for between £150 and £200 less than the 600d, it is a very tempting proposition and it offers arguably better image quality, has class leading live view and in-body stabilisation.

The Canon D60 is a decent option for existing Canon DSLR users to upgrade to, but it is seriously falling behind the other competitors at the inter-changeable lens camera markets; as we can see that the latest Nikon D5100 and Nikon D7000 can both can outperform most of the Canon cameras in term of ISO performance, color depth, and dynamic range.
According to the DXO site, even Sony's A580 can outperform the Canon D60.
Canon presumes their customers will be easily satisfied with modest new features and derelict efforts to increase camera performances; their marketing strategy had clearly misjudged their opponents' abilities to make better cameras at a lower price.
