Mid-level DSLR

Hey guys I'm looking for a great mid-level DSLR camera to buy. I would probably stick to Canon or Nikon but I would buy the best option. I've been looking at the Canon 60D and the Nikon D7000 and various other Nikon and Canon cameras. I'm just lost in a sea of mid-level DSLRs and don't know the best one to get. I never take video, except when I accidentally press the record button. I would love suggestions, buying tips and where I should buy them.
