Btw, until September 1st the EOS 60D can be bought with a $100 rebate (click here) at B&H. The rebate applies to body only and to various kits.

There are three focusing screen available for the 60D (the screens cost $36 at the Canon Store and $32.95 at B&H):
- Focusing Screen Ef-S (Canon Store and B&H). The Canon Ef-S Focusing Screen is optimized for wide-aperture lenses from f/1.8 to f/2.8. Areas that are slightly out of focus appear more out of focus, making it easier to tell when focus is right-on. Ideal for users who frequently manually-focus in dim light with fast lenses.
- Focusing Screen Ef-D (Canon Store and B&H). The Canon Ef-D Focusing Screen is a precision matte surface with etched grid lines to assist composition. The camera’s AF points remain fully visible. Focus characteristics are suited to most lenses.
- Focusing Screen Ef-A (Canon Store and B&H). The Canon Ef-A Focusing Screen is a standard precision matte surface. It is ideal with most lenses including zooms f/3.5 through 5.6.
