I'll be honest- I hate spending that kind of money, and had a headache the ride there, in the store, and on the way home. But I'm already appreciating the iso options, coming up from the 40D.

Not an iso I care to live at, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it in a pinch, either.

Next stop: boxing.

Funny. No, while that would be cool, I'm of the MMA type. I meant I'm gonna shoot some boxing with it later this week.

I started with an XTi 3 years ago, moved up to the 40D 2 years ago, and now I'm officially a 7D owner. I've gotta admit though, I still love my 40D and will keep it for general iso 1600 and under usage.

Did you do any noise reduction on the pic? This is gonna make some nice fighting shots. Thinking about getting one too.

excellent with high ISO, such a significant difference from my old 40D

Thanks guys. Now the "learning curve"... There are some significant differences that I'm not used to!

Lenin- I did some minor NR for the sake of seeing what I could safely reduce. If this iso means the difference between having the shot or going without, I'll take it. It reminds me of the shots I used to take with my XTi at 1600 before I learned to use it properly. But 6400? It shows a lot of promise.

And the AWB- wow, I've heard it before but now I'm seeing it- it's much more accurate than I'm used to. I might get lazy.

I am loving the 7d. Of course I am still learning the camara. The other day at the pro bowl, I was shooting the cheerleaders from about 10ft and had the camara set on "p" with very poor results. I was using my kit lens from my XTi rather then my 28mm and the shutter speeds were in the 1/60 area. Poor results. When i went to shutter priority and 1/400-1/650 the iso went up automatically and the shots came out much nicer. I think the quality and abilty to shoot at very high ISO speeds vs the rebel is just out of this world and I need to get better at what I am doing.
