Well, if you're going to start a thread hemming and hawing about the differences and then go on the enumerate the pitfalls, such as thin DoF becoming your 'style,' yeah, that is how I'm going to read it. If you're not personally worried about too frequently taking advantage of a certain capability, why even bring it up?
I'll gladly share my opinion and experience on when and why moving to FF might make sense, but I get the feeling that the whole thread was started as a decoy so that you could step on your little soapbox so you can spout your oh-so-worldly opinion. If that's the case, I'll gladly bow out; I have no interest in having someone (with little working knowledge of the of the differences between, and the relative strengths of, the two formats) lumping me in with their imaginary FF users that don't have the tact to know when to make use of the capabilities of the tools at hand.
What I find to be overrated - opinions of the under-informed.
Someone needs a chill pill, or ten.
Sure the thread really was mostly just trying to confirm to myself that I want the 7d, but how much of this forum is just people wanting others to say "buy what you want to buy" anyway?
Sorry that I've apparently come off as someone who thinks their opinion is "oh-so-worldly", interestingly you're coming off as the same exact way to me...
When I write a thread, it's going to contain my own reasoning(pros and cons to each camera) even if some of it's wrong(which is why I post it here, so that I can get feedback), I guess that's "hemming and hawing" to you. Sorry but if I'm that annoying to you then find another thread to post in.
Like I've already tried to explain, I do understand that with full frame I can decide not to have shallow dof, and I've always got the ability,with full frame, to have a shallower look if I feel like that's the "look" I want. I know I'm not just going to get "stuck" into some cliche style just because my sensor is larger.
BUT, my point was that I don't NEED the shallower dof capabilities for what I want to do. Take those away and you've still got a few advantages to FF- dynamic range, iso performance, ect., but I feel like those aren't that big of a deal when you consider all that the 7d offers from a feature standpoint for the money.(5d2 would be nice if I could afford it).
I really don't see how I'm the uninformed one, I actually think you're only getting pissed off because I'm not a total sheep willing to take everything you say as gold.
