I like to walk around with my sleeves rolled up carrying in one hand the 7D and 70-200 mounted. Makes my forearms ripple and I look cool like that.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

After all, they call that lens "The Brick", so it will be heavy. I have noticed that when I put my 17-55mm 2.8 on my 7D along with my 580 flash, that combo is fairly heavy too.

Congrats on your new 7D. When funds become available and you get the 70-200 f/2.8L IS, make sure you have a battery grip loaded with two batteries so you can fully appreciate HEAVY!!!

Congrats!

I don't know about others, but I'm in love with the weights from the 24-70. Solid. Firm.

Oh God. How heavy is the battery grip?

Annnddd, does anyone know roughly how long the battery lasts in the 7D on say a casual day out with the camera?

The lens that has been attached to my 7D the most is the 500mm f/4 IS. After that combo, the 70-200 and 24-70 seem to be made of air.

If you're not chimping too often or doing heavy-duty video/live view... the 7D battery should last you anywhere from 1000-2000 shots easily

One battery in my 7d has taken 3000 shots and still reports approx 25% power left, and that includes a reasonable amount of reviewing of the shots.
