I don't know about that but I'm getting a Canon Rebel T3i soon for my birthday. I was told to get the body only (around $800-900 on Ebay) instead of the the ones with the whole set with lenses, tripod, bags, memory card etc (around $1200). That's because the kits lenses are usually the cheap ones, and it's better to invest the really good ones such as sigma 15-200mm (around $350).
Here's a link where you can get some info about canon. http://www.digital-slr-guide.com/canon-digital-slr.html
Yikes, I think I just drooled over the 60D now....I'm in dilemma now since the price for 60D is only a couple hundred more than the T3i.
