I don't think I ever gave the 7D enough credit

I think the reason was really because I was never truly happy was due to me never really giving that camera "Good" glass. I've heard this many times over about the 7D needing good glass.

Who here can vouch for that statement? Did you see a big difference from say a 85 1.8 to a 70-200II in the 7D's performance giving that camera good glass. Sharpness related?

APS-C sensor, need we say more?

That's on the same field as a cheap T2i, 60D etc.

^This guy just got an old beat up 5d three days ago after trading his 60d and all of a sudden he's making these broad generalization. It's sickening when people do the above. Trolling.

YES, precisely. I actually had to "downgrade" to get more. Need I say more? But I don't use video, that's just me.

A lot of people don't like hearing it, that the 7D is just a bigger T2i.

Downgrade even more and learn to shoot the correct way with film. That's how you really learn. Put 24 or 36 exposures in the camera and carefully frame al your subjects, then develop it.

Your comment is childish and adds nothing of consequence for the op.

That's just my opinion.

And this is yours.

So you're telling me that the 7D doesn't have the same sensor as the T2i, 60D? Is your information supported by facts?

Are you the troll or am I?

Oh Frodge you crack me up with your old talk! Don't you know you don't really know how to shoot and expose properly until you've used an 8X10 view camera and can figure out bellows compensation in your head?

You and Kanye need to get a room. It's tiring.

The guy is asking a legitimate question.
Kanye gets a 5d two days ago after trading a 60d in and tells the ip all aps-c sensors are cheap junk. No new for a room, I just don't like that nonsense.

What? You don't even know what equipment I could have possibly had before that. You sound like a troll yourself when you come off with that unsupported nonsense.

To the OP: I've had the 7D, 60D, T2i, several 1Ds (Mk2N, MkIII) and a lot of little rebel bodies.

The 7D deserves some credit, but not my style considering many other factors. For example, shots with it seemed always a tad smoother especially when tested with other bodies using the same glass.

Everything seems sharper on a full-frame body, IMO, and mine's not even a Mark II!!!

i used the 17-55 f2.8 and a 70-200 f2.8 IS on my 7D...

both considered to be pretty good glass but my T2i gave me exponentially better images than with the 7D. i think the AA filter on it had too much impact on IQ...
