I just sold my beloved 50D Gripped that has not once let me down in the 5050 pics we took together.
It had always put a smile on my face after I reveiwed the event's picture on my PC.
I just decided the other day to get the 7D. I don't like taking videos. o I probably never use that feature.
The autofocus looks way to complicated for me.
The body is so expensive, I had to drop the idea of getting a grip for it in the same order.
It must be the fact that it's 18MP and that makes for some nice copping.
I have no trust in it as I heard people having 7D's crap out on them at the best moment. Now the camera and I will have to start from scratch to regain my confidence all over again.
I even have a little headache...because of this move I made. I have an important shoot Jan15. I just hope i am ready.
It's called "buyers remorse" and happens to lots of people making all sorts of purchases. I bought my 5D2 this time last year and felt so bad I didn't unpack it until January!! In my mind, I thought I might return it for a complete refund. I've still got it and it's just about to go to Venice with me.
BTW, I still don't have any interest in video and I really wish Canon hadn't bothered to go down that road. I've heard all the arguments in favour, but if they had wanted to, they could have released a video-enabled full-frame DSLR as a different model. Consumers like choice not non-optional extras. Murphy's Law applies. "If something can go wrong it will", and any fault that develops in the video system will become an issue that would devalue the body: - whether you use video or not!
My car doesn't double as a caravan, my kettle doesn't double as a steam-to-electricity generator.
Xmas does however double as an opportunity to get new kit!
