Congrats! + whatever on the book.

And welcome to the club. We'll show you the secret handshake soon...

Congratulations! The 7D is an awesome camera. I would suggest taking a look at this book by David Buschexternal link.

Enjoy.

Congrats also, love my 7D, so much like my old EOS 3. I upgraded from a 40D and I fully agree with the previous recommendations on the videos and Busch's book. To get the most out of the 7D don't treat it like a faster 40D, learn to use the unique features of the camera.

Get Doug Klostermann's 7D ebook from Amazon. Best 10 bucks you will spend.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I LOVE my Canon 7d. If you are a visual learner, get on creativelive.com and get John Grenco's 7d video tutorial. It helped me immensely. Also, type in canon 7d on youtube and you'll see lots of free tutorials.

Ha. I just got one used and it's a huge difference from 5DII - ergonomics are similar but that's about it.

Yeah, I came from the T3i and when I first picked it up, I was astonished at how much more substantial it felt. The T3i felt like a plastic toy next to it.

Thanks so much for all the helpful hints. I do appreciate them! I have ordered the book by David Busch. I do quite a bit of sports photography ( basketball and baseball) as well as landscape with some wildlife sprinkled in. Kind of nervous about the learning curve stepping up from the 40d but also excited. I will take a look at the videos ( always appreciate a visual aid) and thanks again for the help! Uh...do I get the secret handshake after I have actually used the 7D?

Same here, the exact feel I got.
