I'm loving this camera so far. I bought it in time for hummingbird season and not only has it not let me down, it has excelled.

I am looking forward to shooting sports on a regular basis with it come late August.

So far, I find the AF to be at least as good as my old 1DmkIIn with the noise response better than all of the cameras I've owned except for the 5D (300D, 20D, 1DmkIIn, 50D) and even that's pretty close. I'm finding that I can get excellent quality feather detail shots at iso800, whereas with the 20D, 50D and 1DmkIIn I could only get that kind of detail up to iso400. This is looking like the best all around camera that I've ever owned :) .

Thanks. I credit the AF of the 7d for making it easier to get that shot than in the past. The 1DmkIIn was very close, but so far (regarding shooting hummingbirds) the 7d is better.

Would I be able to achieve the same result with my 550D and 18 - 55mm IS?

Probably not for two reasons, the biggest being that the lens is too short and the other reason is it's a zoom. Zooms in general will not give the detail that a prime will give and for feathers a very sharp lens will leave more latitude for PP/cropping.

Try your 55-250 IS and see how that works. Good luck :) .

Edit: You will almost certainly have to focus manually as I doubt the AF of your camera or lens is quick enough.

Incredible shot, but don't forget, it's not the camera that makes the photo :)

I love that shot! Also, thank you for making a post about how much you like the 7D instead of one about the AF system not working correctly!
