You'll like it. I went from a 350d, to a 40d, to a 7d. I find that the 7d is a little more finicky with some settings, but the outcome is very good. Slight learning curve, but hang in there. Enjoy the new camera!

I'll assume you meant "waiting by the door"...I know how you feel. I just upgraded from my XT as well, you are going to be very happy with the improvements.

You'll see there is a bit of a learning curve with the auto-focus system, but once you master it, you'll love the camera!

Congrats! That's quite the jump in many aspects.

I made the same jump from 350D to 7D a couple of years back, it seemed massive after the 350D but soon got used to it. Read through the manual a few times, there is a lot to absorb, set it up and then don't be tempted to keep playing with all the settings all the time. Learn gradually.

I'm waiting by the door for a 60D to arrive, but I've got a 5D3 already so it's not such an agonizing wait for me. I went from a 550D to a 7D and it was a big jump for me. It's an excellent camera, but you need to read the manual (AF system and custom functios is essential) and get it set up right to get the best from it. Take your time, learn your new toy and it'll give you loads of pleasure and great photos.

I went from Xti to 50d to 5D III. The first upgrade was much easier to learn than the latest, but I look forward to completely figuring this new camera out. Best of luck

xti -> 40D -> 5Dc - > 5D3

Easiest jump was 40D to 5Dc just because I had the time in, and it always felt like I really went backwards in technology, not picture quality.

Hardest being 5Dc to 5D3 so far.

Going from 350 to 7D is a monster jump. You are going to absolutely LOVE it once you learn it.

I thought about the 5dmkII but then I would have no need for the 10-22. And I also like the 8fps.

I lost a very close sharp friend when I went full-frame. It was a sad day indeed.
But she now resides in the hands of a dear friend who will give her the love and care she deserves!!!

I miss you Tamron 17-50 non-vc :cry::cry::cry:

Ahhhh, the ol' XT. I certainly don't miss using that old thing. Your world is about to get flipped upside down. Time to stock up in some expensive, fast writing CF cards.

I recently got rid of my 7D but only because I'm leaving the world of cropped sensor forever. If it wasn't for that one thing, I would have kept it because the focus system and high frame rate is a real pleasure to play with.

I can relate with having to wait for the delivery guy. Waiting on some major B&H orders that are taking forever thanks to a week long delay (passover holidays)

If I make another jump like that, it would be to the 1DsmkIII. Something will come along, bigger, better, band faster, before that happens, I'm sure.

I have been considering the upgrade from the 350D also...looking at used 50D, 60D first since the 7D is a lot ($$ and controls) for a hobbyist, non-professional type like me. Still researching and wish the 60D had micro-focus adjustment like the 50D. I'm stuck wondering if I should wait for another upgrade so the 7D price will drop?
