7D is a wonderful tool. But don't get carried away and discredit the mark III...not exactly just mark II with better AF.

Think I would rather buy 3 x 7D's than the over priced/over hyped 5D MKIII (IMO little more than a FF 7D). I am done drinking the FF coolaid. ;)

You may want to spend a few mins and watch this entire video....

I like the 5D3 because it's helping bring 7D prices down. Tomorrow I'm buying a 7D w/ 28-135 kit for $1200, taken out of the box once.

I had 7D and now I have 5DII.. I was very happy with my 7D's performance including the high ISO IQ. Not sure what the OP is talking about indeed.

Geesh! Have you just started visiting this forum? Do a search in the 'Equipment Talk section' for the 7D and I'd be inclined to think you'd dig up many a thread on users complaining about poor performance.

This thread is intended as a joke. That with everyone jumping on the 5D Mark III party wagon has pretty much silenced those threads for the time being anyway.

Everyone knows the 5D series is the holy grail of IQ - Nothing in the world can compete with them. I read that if you zoom in on the pixels from the 5D MKIII you can see the dawn of time itself.

IQ is important - so is build quality and performance (my croppers are 8 and 10 fps - heck even my 40D is 6.3 fps) - the MKII lacked both - sure the MKIII has more quality - it is likened by many reviewers to the meager $1200 7D :lol:

You guys keep thumping your full frame chests and enjoy your (unsurpassed ;)) IQ - you certainly paid enough for it!!

I've had a 7D and a 5D2 and was happy with both. Both did what I wanted when I used them to their advantages. Now I've sold both and got a 5D3 and I can use it all the time cause it has no disadvantages that I can find. Last night I did some shots of a tree at 9.30 Pm and at ISO 12800 and it's as bright and focussed as if it was daytime. Amazing!

I agree with the guy's term above "chest thumping". Everyone needs to settle down. My car is better than your car, my camera is better than your camera, your camera is overpriced. If you have used both extensively, fine, you have a right to your own opinion. but don't say something is overpriced overhyped if you're not qualified to say so.

7D... It's a great camera. I've owned two of them. It's in a lineup of great Canon bodies. There is a purpose for each, and a purpose for their price.

I have finally worked out the difference between the 5D Series Owners and 7D posters here. Most 7D posters here are yet to pass through puberty and act like little children and have yet to be mature enough to understand that both the 7D and 5D Series are superb cameras but should be restricted to adult ownership.:)

No the real difference between 5D2 and 7D owners is whilst 5D2 owners were blubbering in their bedrooms after finding out there weren't any fairies at the bottom of the garden, 7D owners were vandalising the local phonebox and smoking behind the bikesheds.
Now 5D2 owners sit in their bedrooms, surfing their pics one handed, zooming in to 6 billion percent to double check the dynamic range of each pixel, whilst 7D owners are out taking photos, exposing to the right and getting 100% in focus shots at 8fps :lol: :lol: :lol:

Pretty good deal. Not sure what the used market is for a 28-135, but I would guess around $200.
