The answer is yes its a great camera and it will make you a better photographer just because of what it is.... It did me, and if you can master the light, it will show you some incredible photo's

You can split hair's on all the little thing's but in the end your getting a top quality camera and a lens for $850 buck's ........just do it

I think there may be loads of folk punting their 7d's soon with the rumour that they are coming to an end of life scenario soon.

Surely anybody stupid enough to sell their 7D because a new version is due out 'real soon now' would have sold their 7Ds before the rumoured announcement in April.

Er, that was April 2013. So those idiots have been without a camera for 15 months now.

Oh and here comes the 7DII speculation again. Until it's announced it's 100% myth, the myth has been around almost as long as the 7D itself!!

Don't label me with the other rumour trolls please. I couldn't give two hoots about a new camera. Helps if you read the text properly.

Until it's not supported by Canon anymore it's hardly EOL.

I'm sure we'll find out soon enough about the fate of the 7D. It can't last forever. It started looking old when the 70D came out, and 7D owners have been dying for a new one.

I don't know how many people migrated to the 70D from the 7D. Maybe video users is all. Why would you migrate to worse ergonomics and spotty af?

There was quite a lot of folk on this forum that jumped ship for a 70D, I should know cause when I got my 7D I was very worried for a wee while.

I never said there was people sitting without a camera for 15 months. I said there could be a rise in the number going for sale soon. Please read more carefully next time you jump on the bandwagon.

No, you never said there was people sitting without a camera for 15 months. However, it is the logical conclusion to your initial premise.


You said that the rumour of the imminent arrival of a 7D replacement would result in an increase in people selling their current 7D cameras.

I said that if the rumour of the imminent arrival of a 7D replacement would result in an increase in people selling their current 7D cameras then that increase would have happened 15 months ago - when the rumour first appeared.

Which of those statements do you claim to be false?

Frank you've had a very long time to come up with a pretty sneaky answer, which is essentially how folk assume power over people on the internet and make everyone think they are people of high intelligence. I wrote what I wrote, that is the answer. I won't justify myself to anyone.

I may have taken a very long time to explain what should have been obvious.

Well - I decided to give it a go - and my seller flaked and now won't sell at that price. $!$#!!

I don't get people offering things for sale and then refusing to sell. Ugh.

Frank you have just put a whole cohort of people into that "idiot" category.

I sold my 7D for a 5D3 to have improved AF, image quality and noise handling in low light conditions.

I did this knowing the 70D was soon to be released, and as the 7D was near in the end of the cycle resale wouldn't be as strong.
