I think the most important thing you can do is do what I did, take a card to the store. Put it in the camera and shoot.

Go home, look at the images and decide if it is what you want.

Personally I view the high ISO shots and love the grain look they give. The grain is very small and I have a feeling will clean up nicely if I ever had to. Though to be honest, I do not even remember the last time I used noise ninja/neat image on an image. You don't have to as you will never see it when you print it.

I envy you folks that can do that. I'm in a city of 2 million people, and best buy is the ONLY camera store that carries this type of thing that I know if within 100 miles of me:( Of course that might make my gear lust harder to control?

Or just he could just send it to me and I'll "Test" it for him. I'll give a full report in a few months :D

100% crop of fly's eye. I am sure that the original file was shot on small jpg as I cannot open the raw files in CS4 yet.

I understand what you wrote was YOUR opinion but to say that the 7D @ 5000 ISO is = to the 50D @ 1600 ISO is about 1 1/2 stops better. Everything I have seen posted shows the 7D to be about 1/3 to 1/2 stop better. Which for many including myself is not that big of a deal. The 50D at about 1/2 the cost of the 7D is what is keeping a lot of folks with their 50D's.

I like the feature set of the 7D but Canon is too wrapped up in MP racing so the IQ improvements are so small so as to be not worth mentioning, in the REAL world.


I like to see balance in a report. While we all get excited with new toys at some point we all come down from the sugar rush and see things in a more balanced light. Enjoy the new toy.

AllenF,

Your right it is an opinion, but something else to consider is the image quality. 50D image quality to be honest was not that great. I had one, and I did not like it.

I personally believe that the 7D files are of high quality and are as close to the Mark III as I have seen. Mark III files are great.

I see more stops then what you see to be honest, but as you said every eye is going to see it differently. So please hopefully you take it as that, an opinion not fact.

But anyways the IQ, ISO, layout, quality of feel from the camera is good enough for me to purchase it.

(I should note that I open my files in LR3 (LR2) and if I have to export them to CS4 when needed.)

I'm sure BH and Adorama wouldn't condone this, but in my case, it's just as good to do the pre-research....then order, try...and in only one case..return. They really are pretty good about it. Of course, all the stuff I've been trying to get rid of to pay off the 7d is too far past the return policy:)

Yes, consider yourself lucky in a way. I live within easy striking distance of three (3!) Samy's Camera stores and five Best Buy stores. And a number of other independent camera stores (they're priced higher though).

Yikes. This is definitely a danger zone. It's been fun, but expensive.
