One of key elements I've discovered - be really good, let your work speak for your self.
one thing to consider is power and batteries - 60D uses LP-E6 and run way longer, and when you upgrade you can keep the batteries because 6D, 5Dmk2 & 5Dmk3, 7D & 7Dmk2 all use the same ones.
It is not as straight forests as you think. Of you consider used one also 7D and 5Dmk2 is in your price range, and both benefit from magic lantn. You can shoot raw with them with fast cf card you can not do that with sd cards. I do not see pintin getting new 60D, moraly old camera
