Because if I knew the 7D was coming with features wanted, I wouldn't have bought the 50D (lacking features I wanted) only a few months ago and waited. So I've essentially spent my 7D money on a 50D.
That's why I'm upset.
Dude, you've had a whole thread to rant and rave about this here. As stated, people are not on board with your sentiment, so let it go.
If you want the 7D that bad, sell your 50D for as much as you can, buy the 7D, and have fun shooting. Or here's an idea you could keep your 50D,
It's pretty irritating to see a forum like POTN get like this when a release is announced. I open up the EOS Camera Discussion forum and all I see is arguments and ranting and raving about the 7D. Some are positive, but many are not. No one even has the camera yet - they're just on preorder. How long is it gonna be like this?
For those irritated that it wasn't a full frame camera, not sure I understand. You just recently got the 5dii. The Rebel line just got the T1i. It was time for the crop bodies to get theirs.
Seems like those with rebels, or XXd cameras are happy with the 7d, other than those who feel like canon is out to get them by allowing them to purchase a 50d weeks prior to its release. The main people irritated are those with 5dii's who basically don't like the fact that a cheaper camera was released with features they wish they got.
This is how technology works guys. It's like this with anything. If you golf, better clubs with better features will come out at a fraction of the cost. Heck, if you make wood carvings, better blades are gonna come out. And yes, it may be days after you just bought yours. You won't escape it, so just embrace it. Be thankful that you can still make great images with the equipment you have.
I for one am refusing to get all bent out of shape about it. Maybe that's easy to say since I am not negatively affected by it. Nevertheless, I'll go outside, take some pictures, learn, and steer clear of these threads from now on.
You can go back to your bickering now!
