No more remorse!
Wow - 7D is a beast in comparison!
Now I just have to unlearn a few finger placements and do a large amount of light reading! Thanks again for all of your input - much appreciated!

Can't wait to see you back here complaining about how difficult the focusing system is to live with, and how much more expensive CF cards are compared to SD cards ;)

its was masked in sarcasm.

when the 7d2 comes out people will probably complain how terrible the 7d1 is, see 5d2 vs 5d3.

lol. I figured there was a note of sarcasm! :)

Saw this online this morning, and it made sense to my situation, and sums up a lot of people in their quest for improvement:

You misspelled "Lebowski"...

Only you know if the upgrade is worth it...but I would say if you have to question it, it's not worth it.

All my upgrades have been no-brainers...I knew I wanted/needed them, upgraded and was happy.

That's a really dumb picture.

I'm sure Bill Clinton regretted getting a BJ from Monica, KitchenAid regrets talking about Obama's dead grandmother, etc...

Money is worthless if you aren't using it. Quite like toilet paper. Get the 7D!
