Migrating to SD cards is not such a big revolution as many make it out to be. Au contraire: SD cards are smaller and almost every laptop has a card reader. Also, there is nothing special about CF cards, and a CF slot does not make the body any more professional. Like eosfun points out, SD card slots don't have any pins that can bend or break, and you can be very sloppy and carefree when you insert/remove the card. Furthermore, the card won't pop out on the floor like a CF will, if you happen to press the release button too hard. What's not to like about SD?
As for the 60D style multi-selector, that is indeed a bit of a let-down. You get used to it, but it is not right next to your thumb like the joystick on the 5D2. I use the separate button and front wheel to select the AF point myself, because it is faster and less fiddly that way. The multi-selector is not really useful during shooting, it's basically there for browsing images and using the menu.
