If counterbalance is the only issue, it would not be hard to add weight to the bottom of the T2i. That way you'd have the option of a lighter camera too. Whether something feels toy-like is of no concern to me. I'm only concerned with workability. My guess is that the minimal added weight of the 60D would not make a big difference with the leverage of a long heavy lens. With either body you have to support it under the lens when shooting handheld, just a slightly different place. That's not say there aren't more than enough reasons to go with the 60d. But to me weight is not one of them.

I just jumped on the DSLR bandwagon (Canon 60d) and after using it for the first time on a shoot last week I could not imagine doing without the movable LCD screen. It came in very handy on multiple occasions. The battery life is supposed to be longer as well.

The larger body is nice though.
We use the LCDVF and it works fine mounted on the screen with the magnetic ring. If you position the screen like it is on a t2i (folded back against the body with the screen exposed) and attach the lcdvf it most certainly acts as a 3rd point of contact just the same as a t2i. the majority of time I shoot with the 60d I do it the same way you would with a t2i. The 60d is just better when I need to get a high or low shot. Having more ISO increments is a big plus as well.

>>THE tiny detail here is that Magic Lantern now also works with the 60D!

Do you have verification of this (link?)

I've only seen a non-functioning version for developers.

You'll need the main download, and the newest update. Both are linked from this page.
