I'd love to see what kind of photography you do, because that is the biggest bulshit I've heard in a while. I used both for shooting weddings for two years, I have quite some experience for telling so.

Why is this showing D7000 17.9 Mp vs 600D 16.1 Mp?

D7k is a better choice definitely, tougher body and it's very user friendly. Camera response is very fast!
