We did. But the 60D is not a compromise, or a step down. It is a reposition, call it sideways. For some it will be up, for some down.

I am not aware of any "plastic" DSLR that has a plastic mount. All that I have seen are metal. The 60D mount is metal. There are cheap lenses whose mounting surface is plastic, most notably the Canon "nifty fifty" 50/1.8.

Whether or AF goes out of adjustment when a camera is dropped depends on how the shock of the impact is distributed through the camera and lens. I think the "mechanism", in terms of moving parts, is all in the lens, I could be wrong.
