Also think about staying with the xxD series? Maybe a 40D or 50D? Just some food for thought! :)

I thought about it. I do like that the 5d, 20d and 10d all share the same battery.

Sue, I know a lady that shoots with this lens all the time. A monopod works wonders.

I bought the 7d. It does not say anywhere on the website about it being anything other than new. It had better be new. I paid with a credit card not a debit card so Chase will have my back if something is wrong. It should be here in a week. I will check out buying a new 20d shutter and soder it in.

If you bought from the Canon refurbished store, it is just the opposite, they will not say it is new anywhere. It might be new, it might not.

I say fix it. Why not? For the price how can you go wrong? We just sent a dead 350D in for repairs. I think the cost will be $210.00. When it comes back it will be another decent backup body to use or let someone else use...

I just sold my very good condition 20D for AU$250 ( < US$300). Stuff spending anything over $150 on repairs IMO, though I think the idea of a $50 part and some soldering is a solid idea, just don't go zapping yourself on a the flash capacitor ;)

I owned both a 20D and 7D at the same time for over a year. Once I bought the 7D the 20D was very hard to go back to - the photos still awesome, the experience of shooting with it much less so.

I would get a 40D or get a 1D mkii for back up sports, the thing to remember is that the shutter has gone, whats next?
