How much do you want for your 7D? I live in the area and am thinking about pulling the trigger on a 7D.

I'll rid you of that pile of crap for good.:p

Don't know yet. My girlfriend happily took the x100 over the 7d so I assume the 7d Will go soon. What's a fair price these days for what canon claims to be a "perfect" 7d? I'll take 50 bucks for it. For the image quality it produces, it's not worth much to me. When would you like to meet? (I'm just joking lol - I don't want a bajillion pm's asking me for it. Lol!)

From the sound of it, the 7D is tormenting him so much, you'd be doing him a favor. So he should pay you to take the 7D off his hands. :lol:

I say it's all Marlon's GF's fault for selecting the 7D. Therefore, we can further infer that she makes very poor decisions, and might not be a keeper after all.

(Yes I am joking with that last sentence.) *rib jab*

Hahaha Julian. The 7d was a VERY poor decision. She said it would really benefit the 5d (because of its crop factor, hd video) and thats all good on white paper, but all it did was leave me with just one body to rely on. :( it's like buying a car based on just white paper.

Just in case Marlon's GF doesn't know how he truly feels about the 7D, it might be a public service for someone to direct her to this thread.  :p

Of course, it would be a compliment to her that he happily uses the camera and speaks well of it despite his suppressed disdain for it.

no need. She KNOWS how much I hate the 7d. Its either sittin on her desk showering in a slow bath of dust or flying accross Canada to be inspected, calibrated, and cleaned by canon CPS repetitively. Canon doesn't want to see it anymore. Lol.

Lol! Ditch my girlfriend? Never. I love her with my whole heart and would even risk my own happiness for a 200 f2L to purchase her a wedding ring - now that's love. Hahah! Nerdy photog love.

Btw. Does anyone have that link for the 200mm f2L vs wedding ring thread. I need a good laugh.

Here you go. 200L won by a mile :)

Picked up a new 7D yesterday, did a few shots late that afternoon and, I like it. Stepped up from a T2i.

7D is an amazing camera.

It has humbled many people who thought they knew what they were doing, myself included. Read the manual, look at youtube for video tutorials. I spent about a month with the camera, computer, and manual..... and I have been shooting Canon cameras since 1973 or so.

I should ask my wife if I need a 1.4 extender. :]

The 1.4 is the one to get - I hear the 2.0's performance is a little soft.

Like everyone else my only gripe about the 7d is ME. I have shaky hands at times (not all the time) and that is a huge impact. Does it make sense that the 7d is more susceptible to camera shake than say a XS?? Other than ME I love the 7d, IMO I could care less what the 5d2 can do cause thats irrelevant until I am ready to afford the FF. Personally due to the quick as heck auto focus unless something hugely drastic happens I will have this body for a long time to come.

I have had my 7D for just over a year. I love this camera, and I can assure anyone that, at least in my case, any issues the camera may have were caused by Me, solely by Me, and no one else but Me. When I get it right, nothing is better, if you mess up just a tad then you see focus issues, and noise. Oh well, live, learn, and enjoy. The nice thing is bits and bytes are cheap!

Here is a shot I took around 8:30pm here, used a bare speedlite just for a little fill. Just wanted to point out the noise in the blue sky TBH it is not bad at all. This image is pretty much SOOC. My buddy with a 5d2 could not stand the noise. Too each their own I guess.

The image seems to be rather underexposed. :confused: Is that intentional?

yes it was trying to see the grain in the blue sky on a underexposed image, everyone I know complains about it, I think it is acceptable.

As has been mentioned before, the files are not as forgiving in post as those from a larger sensor. I notice the noise is harder to clean up, but the NR in lightroom 3 is insanely good and really helps to produce clean sharp images. It's still a loss of a little detail for removal of the noise, or dealing with noise for the sharpest image.

For me, it comes down to this. A shot taken on full frame will be more forgiving, but that IQ quickly diminishes when you have to heavily crop the full frame image. The 7d is the perfect complement for me when I need to have those additional pixels on a distant subject. Like much in photography, it's a compromise.

Can't wait for next week, I can finally join the 7D club. I'll have my XSI as my backup so while I learn the 7D I can still shoot and be proud of myself. LoL.

Same path I took, your gonna really like it.
I have to agree with some of the other posts, the 7d will make you humble.
