Wow, back in the day when I was shooting my 3.31 megapixwl Nikon compact (which ran for about a thousand bucks) I would have PAINFULLY LUSTED for this kind of image quality. We are living in good times, and we should count our blessings.

(it sickens me when these caliber of cameras are announced and you come across disatisfied consumers and their venting, such as "F.U. Canon!"... spoiled rotten punks)

PS - remember to correct white balance when using these test charts! And... thanks for sharing!

Thanks :) I'm pretty happy with it too.

Yes, this would difinitely benefit from WB adjustment, but I deliberately did not do any processing on this image, just cropped and saved as jpeg.
It was just a quick shot to test my new cheap zoom. I will probably use manual white balance next time I shoot this chart, I think camera was on AWB setting for this shot.
Thanks again ;)

I guess from an IQ standpoint, I'm trying to determine why I need to replace my 30D. I feel like I can get the same IQ from my 30D as the 7D (without the higher ISO settings on the 7D). The only images I've seen that really make me want to replace it are from full frame bodies...i.e., 5D or 1D. Could someone tell me why else I should upgrade to the 7D (and please don't say MP's).

If you're happy with what you've got and it adequately serves your photographic needs, there probably is no good reason to upgrade. You would have to specify specific areas where you feel you need improvement over your 30D (e.g., need faster continuous shooting or better autofocus) before we can provide you with relevant recommendations.

This is probably the most reasonable response I've ever seen on these forums when it comes to gear. You are right about faster continuous shooting and better autofocus. I guess a few more FPS on a burst or a few more AF points would be nice. I suppose I view the 7D as the "latest" 30D (although there have been the 40D and 50D in between). Still trying to understand the need for HD video on an SLR.

7D shoots video, I know some people who have found it quite handy and they thought they would never use it.

I am looking at upgrading from a 40D and the main pros for me are the autofocus and better high iso performance.

I definitely didn't buy mine because of the video feature, although I might use it occasionally. Of course, my upgrade was from a 350D/XT, so I probably had more reason to upgrade than an XXD user. :D

I used to live in Porchester (back in the '60s) .. and as a kid I grew up playing in the castle. Spent some years in Fareham as well.

You would find West Street a bit different now! but Castle Street hasn't really changed.

Yep .. went back just before I left for Canada back in '94. Signs everywhere stopping you climbing the castle walls.
Without showing my age .. I can remember the winter of '63 when the sea water down by the castle froze almost the all the way across to the little island, and we had snow drifts up to the upstairs window sills. As a kid I used to bike over to the railway station up towards the old fort. A bunch of use would play chicken and stand on the bridge over the tracks while the steam trains went past .. happy days :D

Ability to adjust focus on lenses
Faster/better AF
Better high ISO

I don't think you can downplay MP's - as long as not coming at the expense of high ISO quality why wouldn't more resolution be a good thing? It's like a free perfect teleconverter for your 30D. Can always shoot at lower resolutions as well.

I don't get the quality of sharpness from my 30D that I am seeing in these crops - I would attribute to resolution primarily.
