Canon EOS 60D released on 26 August 2010

For several months I read various tweets and posts on the Internet about the new Canon EOS 60D. Officially it was not announced but many people already expected the launch on 26th of August. Last Thursday my Google Alerts started to shows up in my Inbox on pages containing “canon 60d”. Finally all specs and first pictures of 60D were available.
