Well I just received my 2nd 7D and this time instead of going to the races and shooting away after setting it up, I decided to set it up and test some shots at a distance.
Unfortunately I am comparing it to my 40D that gives me supercrisp shots without any special programming. My 40D probably has 400,000+ clicks with no issues ever and using the same settings, same lens the 7D is notably SOFT!! WTF?
Looks to me the best route is to shoot the 7D on M-Jpeg or M-Raw so its not trying to cram so much onto the smaller sensor thus making the details softer. So my questions...
Why is there so much focus on having an 18mp camera if the 8mp smaller image gives a better detail? Seems like I could have wasted a lot less time and money buy new glass and kept the 40D as my workhorse. I will admit the video is nice, but I am still not feeling the Love from the 7D.
