Would you upgrade to a 7D if you have a 60D?

Yea I got the $1100 deal. I upgraded to the 60D from the T2i as well. I shouldn't have upgraded as the T2i buttons aren't squishy and they're not all that different internally.

I have the 40D and the following lenses: Canon 10-22mm EF-s, 60mm EF-s macro, 24-105 EF-is and the 70-200 EF-is. I am planning to keep the 40D and buy a second body.
I am thinking of the 7D because the 5D mkII is about $900 higher.
Opinion please!

That's not really true. The 60D has a ton of under the hood improvements, including better viewfinder, top LCD, much better battery, faster shutter, 1/3 stop exposure controls, faster FPS, and all cross type AF.

The reason the buttons are "squishy" is because the 60D actually has membranes under the buttons to keep dust and moisture out. It's the difference between an exposed contact and one that is protected.

Back to the point, no, I have no desire to upgrade. I'm nowhere near pushing the limits of the 60D, and frankly the lenses I have right now don't have the focal speed to keep up with what the 7D kind of demands if you want to fully leverage the AF system for fast moving objects. I would rather spend the difference on another lens or part of my first L or the 17-55 f/2.8

the 7d is not about speed. Sure it has higher fps (if you even need it.) and better AF. But it's more. The body is better sealed. Customization of buttons enables an experienced photographer to quickly react to changes in a scene therefore netting images that others can't. Ergonomics is important IMHO. This is something missing with the 60d. It lost that x0d ergonomics. It's ok for Rebel shooters. But for us folks that shot with previous x0d, it is tough to stomach the missing joy stick and dial.

However the 60d has a swivel LCD which is very nice to use.

In a heartbeat.
Then again, I'd never have a 60D to begin with.


I got the 7D because I knew if I got the 60 I'd be wishing I had the 7

so...............to answer the question as posed.......YES

You'd be better off putting that $350 toward lenses.

So you went from t2i to 60d to 7d in how long??

You may be in contention for the record.

Is the improved AF worth $350?

I'd be surprised if the 7D buttons feel any different or less "squishy" compared to the 60D; their weather sealing is pretty similar.

How about t1i to 7d, i like the idea of wireless flash trigger and lots of other stuff for sure but what about high Iso performance. In comparisson to the T1i, big difference or not ?

If you need the AF, yes. Not for IQ.

nah...maybe for a newer 8d or mk3 when they come out.

the 60d is a very capable camera in itself.

Er, exactly which dial is it you believe to be missing on the 60D?

And, while the replacement for the joystick isn't quite as easy to use, I've found it adequate. And about a billion times better than anything on a rebel.

It would be really, really helpful if people could restrict their comments to cameras they actually do, or have, own(ed).

....

Opinion please!

I went from a 40D to a 7D and I think it is a fantastic move.

I loved the 7D so much and was shooting a lot more that I bought a second 7D to back up the first.

Then I made a decision to get a 5D2, so I sold one 7D to buy the 5D2.

Months after getting the 5D2, I was questioning the decision to buy it to begin with.

Using the 5D2, it felt dated .... like I had taken a trip back in time.

Still have the 5D2 and 7D, but the 5D2 feels neglected unless I am shooting stills indoors.

I am awaiting the arrival of the 1DX, if it turns out to be what I think it will be I will dump the 5D2 and just look at it as one of those mistakes you learn from.
