T4i vs 60d vs 7d ... I am sure this has been asked before

They all the same sensor and metering. 60D is a compromise for better handling and weather sealing than rebel but 7D ergonomics and autofocus is in untouchable level. For casual use T4i or even T2i is better and way cheaper. 60D can be bought for $600, 7D for $1000 and T2i for $350 or less.

Canon has a $200 rebate on their 7ds until the April 27th. I'm about ready to pull the trigger. Thanks everyone. Great discussion.

This is a great discussion and it couldn't be more timely. I have 2-50ds and an XTi. I was planning on selling my 50d's this week and buying a 7d. I originally thought I'd buy a 6d because I really wanted a good landscape camera and the FF sensor can't be beat. However, I still shoot my grandchildren's sporting events and the 6d autofocus doesn't seem like it holds a candle to the 7d. The 19 point cross-type focus on the 7d is hard to beat. I will miss the FF sensor but I suspect it's still a good compromise under the circumstances. I will but FF sensor camera someday but it's not in the cards now. I ruled out the T4i because I just don't like the small frame feel. If size doesn't matter the T4i specs look pretty darn good.

The 7d for sports is tough to beat, but with the right lens, it is also a nice landscape and portrait camera. I have spent a lot of time handling rebels recently shopping for one for my daughter. They are great but the 7d just feels like a different class of camera. And to the OP, between the 7d and 60d, if you are shopping for a body to last, why not get one that will give you room to grow as a photographer. That is definitely the 7d. They are definitely becoming more an more affordable.

Just a note on the micro adjustment of the 7d. It is one number only. So for a zoom lens, you have to pick a focal length and then make a single adjustment for the entire lens. In the full frame 6d and up cameras, they now allow you to make two adjustments per zoom lens. That is absolutely amazing. Just want you to realize that the microadjust in the 7d does NOT have that feature.

I pulled the trigger on the 7d last night. It was shipped this morning. Thanks everyone for making my decision easier. I'm going to post my two 50ds for sale tomorrow. I'm keeping my XTi as my backup. Cheers!
