I made the jump from the xt to the 7d. Worth every penny, read as much as you can get your hands on.


7d gripped, canon 10-22. canon 50 1.4, canon 135L, Mamiya equipment.

I have an XT as well and have been wanting to upgrade for some time now. I went to Micro Center today while my IT guy fiance was picking up some stuff and I decided to go play with the cameras. I've had my eye on the 60D and played with it for a little bit. They also had the 7D and I decided that I had to play with that one as well (although I shouldn't have). Now I want the 7D. Although, my wrists ached from the weight. :) Anyone know how to make some quick, easy cash;) What got me was the auto focus. It was love at first sight.

I made the decision and now have in my hands the 60D. Only had time for a quick play last night, but I love it and can't wait til tomorrow when I'll have time for a proper play.

I don't feel much difference in the weight between it and the XT. It doesn't feel big in my hands etc, however, I then picked up my XT and it felt like a toy compared to the 60D.

Yep. When I first picked up the 5D3, the weight momentarily surprised me, but within 5 minutes I didn't even notice and actually appreciated the size difference. When I picked up my T2i later on in the day (and looked through the viewfinder) I couldn't believe the difference, despite having used it for a couple of years - so quickly I had forgotten what it was really like. Now that I've sold my T2i awhile back, if I happen to pass by it in a store on display, I pick it up and each time it shocks me for the size difference (almost practically half the width). It's not necessarily a bad difference, it just keeps shocking me for some reason :lol:

:D Glad you are happy with your new camera!
