Don't mind the nikon fanboys harping on the sole weakness of the 5d2 (even though center-pt AF is excellent) knowing full well they lust for the MP and hdslr to feel better. Oh isn't it time for Nikon to venture out towards the edge instead of clustering all the x-type points instead of clustering around the center? ;)

Meh, people hate on my camera all the time, if you do a search in this forum is nothing but threads stating you shouldn't get it and there's better camera's, sounds like the same thing is going on with the 7D. As long as it takes great pictures there shouldn't be much to complain about.

I used to have a EOS 1n, then I got away from photography as a hobby for a long time. Picked up a point and shoot just to have a camera, never could get into it. Was looking at the 5D II and the 7D. Decided on the 7D based on some features it had that I liked. Honestly it is a lot better camera than I am a photographer. I feel more at home with it than a point and shoot and think I'll appreciate the pop up flash of the 7D more than the full frame sensor of the 5D II for hobby shooting. Got a chance to take some pics with it this weekend, I really like it. Nothing shoots like a Canon :)

Theres one of three reasons this thread was started in the first place:

1. Trolling
2. OP's frustration from not knowing how to use the 7D
3. A third agenda we're not aware of to criticise one of Canons best cameras

I reckon you have no idea about what is going on in this thread and instead of reading a few posts to educate yourself you made assumptions.

1. If I was a troll would I of waited this long to begin trolling?
2. I am making a living with a 7D and have a great understanding of how it works.
3. Again, you obviously did not read the thread or attempt to understand.

I think this is a problem with a lot of internet forums, folks read just a few lines of the initial post, form an opinion under assumptions, and post their thoughts. So why don't you go back and read the thread, contribute, or not.

None of those I'm afraid :p. Op just concerned about many threads related to 7D noise, blah blah blah.

This is exactly the point.

Put it this way, if you just need an APS-C camera to take family pictures, some still macro photography, with some landscape and sports thrown in there, get a T3i or 60D. The picture quality should be the same as the 7D and cost less. If you need fast 8FPS shooting, rugged weather resistance body, 19 point AF with outstanding Al servo tracking, then the 7D is your camera. The 7D is doing what it is intended to do.

G'day all, I want to say thank you to all of you for your input. I asked the question regarding its softness, IQ and noise issues in another thread, and frankly, I was put off by most of the comments. I had a choice to make whether to go with the 7D and 5D mkII, so I asked the question. I wanted to get a rugged and weather proof body ad these were my options. Some comments were very critical of the 7D, almost making me believe that this was Canon's big mistake. After reading this thread, I regained my confidence in the 7D, so much so that it's now on the cards that I will get a 7D (looking at a second hand one tomorrow). The positive contributors to this thread have highlighted the great camera this is, I've come to believe that "A bad Tradesman always blames his tools". A big thank you to all, I will join the 7D family (if you'll have me LOL).

Regards, Dutch

You won't be disappointed - it's a great camera and certainly more capable than 99.999999% of those who criticize it. Eh...Make it 100%

- I don't count "pixel peepers" or the "IQ obsessed" as serious photographers - As the OP said, it's about "technique, skill and creativity" - Never has been about the equipment as has been proved countless times.

Wow, what a nice picture! You must have a really great camera!

Dutch, this is the reason I started this thread. I am a member of a local photographer/video community and many of the professionals there shoot stills and video on the 7D and all are happy. There are also many who shoot the 5D MKII and there is no where the animosity between the 7D and 5D owners that there is in this forum. I was afraid of all those folks tearing the 7D apart would generate falsehoods and rumors and turn many people off to a great camera.
I want to stress that is it not so much the body, as a matter of fact when it comes to a DLSR I count the body last behind skill level, lighting, and glass. I have worked with professional photographers that have taken excellent images with a G9. I shutter to think what the pixel peepers would say about that. While they are going through their images at 200% and shooting test charts the rest of us are enjoying our gear and making a living with said gear.

[A bad Tradesman always blames his tools".

Love that quote! My purpose for a camera is to take photos to help preserve memories. Some just want to discuss a particular camera body's technical strengths and weaknesses. Learn to use what you have and do your research when you upgrade but go out and shoot!

The equipment can make the job easier or harder. The good equipment makes it easier, while the bad equipment makes it harder. And, of course, that's all relative, too. There's no perfect equipment out there (no, not even the 1D4!).

I see a lot of this nonsense in my business( construction). There are guys out there that can go on and on about how Fein is better than Porter Cable, and how the rpm's of a Festool router is better suited for oak than pine. Problem is, that none, and I mean none of them know how to make money. What little they make, they spend on buying better tools.
there are those on this forum that go on and on about pixels, and AF speed etc. It gets old, fast. If you don't like a particular lens or camera, don't buy it and if you own it and don't like it. Sell it.
There is nothing worse than a know it all.
Normally, if I see a post that I know is going in that direction, I just won't read it. But lately it has become unavoidable. Especially the crap about the 7D.

I'm very happy with my 7D! I love the AF system so much that I have not even thought of 5D2. The only time I will even think about upgrading is when a full-frame gets released with 7D's AF system (in a non 1-series body).

5D3!!! I've been thinking about going with the 5D2.. but after playing with my uncle's 7D AF system.. I don't think I could go back

All this hype about the 5D mkIII !!!! Is it even happening, I've looked everywhere and can't find anything about Canon's next release. It sounds to me like a lot are waiting for it, what is essentially a non existent product. You might be waiting quite some time, and if it comes - WILL YOU BE HAPPY ??? I'm sure that it will be picked to pieces, just like the 7D.

Regards, Dutch
