I sold my 7d a while back. I miss the pop up flash, its ruggedness, and its auto focus.

Should I buy a used one?
Another option is to buy the new g16.
I shoot primarily moving objects namely my kids. Lots of times it would be indoors.

Is there shutter lag on the g16? I am concerned about the shooting speed when it takes the time to autofocus to actually taking the picture.

I just don't want to miss the shot.

Look at the 70D. It has a slightly downgraded AF system, but a faster processor, than the 7D. It has lots more bells & whistles and a real MFA system for zooms. It looks like you get quite a lot for your money. That said, I can do a decent job of HS athletics with a 60D. You can get a refurbed 60D right now for $612 direct from Canon with a 1-year warranty.


Dedicated APS-c shooter. Gripped 60D, 60 2.8, 10-22, 15-85, Σ70-200 OS and a big white something or other! Plus a 5D w/28-75.

Sure. The 7D is a great camera. I shoot cycling events, and the 7D does a fine job of managing the focus, especially if you do the right job of selecting your focal pattern. I use expanded center spot, mostly, and it does a great job. I also shoot with a 1DIII, and it's a pretty even trade-off. With the increased pixel count, you can get away with cropping closer with the 7D than the 1dIII. Just my opinion, of course...

Regards!

What's your budget?

(though I can't say I really ever used the pop-up flash) :lol:

i am pretty impressed with 70d specs/features.
why was i even looking at 7d? lol

my budget is around $600, so that's why i was looking at a used 7d.

really, i used pop up flash before.
i own a 6d, but sometimes i don't want to lug around external flash for that casual photographing.
6d is so beautiful, and 7d would be a rugged tank. I'd just even take it case-less everywhere.

7d and pancake/18-55, and i have a decent casual bring anywhere, always ready camera. - kinda like what g16 is offering

To me no DSLR is a take everywhere camera. I would look into the G series.
