Funny how everyone is in such a frenzy on this camera. I don't remember it being that way when I bought my 40D...man that seems like a long time ago!

That's because the 40D, while a good camera, was really just another in a series and wasn't all that much of an upgrade from the 30D. The 7D offers something new to the Canon lineup and is the camera that many of us have been wanting for the past couple years.

O

All I was trying to convey is that it seems that so many people are acting as if high ISOs are the MOST IMPORTANT thing on a camera, and that if it doesn't produce virtually SPOTLESSLY CLEAN images at these higher ISOs, then the camera is NFG.

I realize that high ISO performance is very important to some, and is in fact even critical to some, but it seems like that's the ONLY, or MOST IMPORTANT factor to the majority of people in the 7D threads, and NOT how SHARP an image it can produce at "normal" i.e. low ISO settings.
...

Maybe the people who don't care much about high ISO performance aren't reading these threads and/or aren't commenting on the topic. Since they don't care and all.

And maybe those of us who care a lot, care enough to maybe spend a couple thousand dollars to upgrade, are interested enough to keep reading and actually want to see these comparisons.

There are a lot of other features that make the 7D look good, but they aren't so easy to judge (AF speed/accuracy, metering, weather sealing, ergonomics, etc). What we all can do is pixel peep and check out the high ISO noise. So this is what we get, ISO comparison threads. Which is good. :)

And as others have said, "sharp" is a function of the lens unless you are talking about diffraction limits of the sensor.

It would be great if you want to test the weather sealing on one and get back to us about how long a 7D can function in a shower. I will read every post, but don't expect a comparison to my 40D. :)
