They have a pretty high success rate in getting advance information that
turns out to be accurate. According to their sources, the upcoming 60D will
have movie mode.

the potential for much higher-quality optics than most 'true' video
things this side of ex-pen-sive.
But it isn't a normal video camera by any means. I'm not currently
convinced that the ergonomic (form factor) difference is significant
in use, but I'm not convinced that it isn't either.
- Hello, folks,
To all who responded, here and off-list, a big thank you. It helped me
a lot in my choice. Now, if I may, another question: it seems
imposible to find this lens here in Brussels :-( , and, as I'm going
to spend the next weekend in Paris, I'd like to know if and where I
can find it. Does any one of you Paris panographers know it, please?
Of course, if we can arrange a meeting it would be nice too, but I
can't say anything for sure, as it's a trip for the wife, and as
always she's the boss ;-) .
Thanks a lot in advance,
