7D users like me probably considered the 5D or 5DMK2 before buying our 7Ds. Is the 5DMK3 really any different?
The new 5DMK3 WILL have some great features. A new 61 point focus system with more cross type at 2.8, 4.0 and 5.6, new metering system, video upgrades, ability to rate our images in camera (with a new special button), an SD card slot as well as the CF slot, and a few more which don't improve our images. I would LOVE to have that new focus system but the 7D focus system works great! I would also like that SD slot.... Nothing has really changed unless you were waiting for this day to upgrade to full frame or have some special video needs.
The 7D has dual Digic 4 processors. It has the speed, feel, viewfinder, a great focus, metering, and processing system. I don't know how the single Digic 5 processor will compare to the dual Digic 4s. The 7D is the best crop body Canon makes. The image quality is good. If you know how to use it and process the images it's pro quality. I LIKE the crop sensor. It suits my needs and I get more reach and use the center of my lenses.
The new 5DMK3 looks to be a sweet body. The 7D is a proven sweet body with a crop sensor. How many of you 7D users plan go full frame with the 5DMK3 or 5DMK2? Maybe you are keeping the 7D and getting a 5D for a second body? What are you 7D users doing?
