So - I've been contemplating upgrading from my T2i to either a 7D or 70D.
Came across a local deal - a 7D less than a year old - approximately 3,000 actuations. Includes the kit lens - EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and everything it came with new (box, strap, manuals, etc).
Looks like I can pick up the package for somewhere in the $850 range.
Is this something I need to jump on? This feels like one of those deals that found me - seems like a great deal.
I'm looking to upgrade for better AF and faster burst shooting (sports).
It comes with a lens, has a low count, and is priced right. Go for it. Especially if you're looking for robust autofocus. It's image quality will not be better than you T2i, so don't expect a ton there. But getting a focused photo, and holding focus on a moving person in sports, that's what the 7D is all about. Push ISO up and let the FPS do the work. Cherry pick your photos at that point, as you'll have thousands to sift through in just a few sessions I'm sure.
If you want image quality increase, and a good fast AF system, then the 70D is only $150 more than this. Something to consider.
