Just got my 7D from CLP. The exterior looks impeccable. The battery is on the charger. I have not fired it up yet. It's funny, I feel mildly intimidated. I know that this will become an phenomenal tool though. I just want to learn about it and know it!

My advice, read the manual...many, many times. I find it helps to go through the camera and optimize the settings to your preference as you read, so you can become familiar with it. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of information trying to crammed into your head.

There are SO many settings on this camera it's not even funny...

FWIW, just received my 7D from the loyalty program. (Traded in an AE-1 I received as a high school graduation present--kinda sad I suppose. Then again, whoever thought I could get $200 of value out of that reliable old classic!) Anyway, the 7D looks brand new--not a scratch or mark anywhere. First shot was numbered 01-0001.
The battery, however, had been used. Slight marks and blemishes on the underside--which I only noticed after opening a new battery alongside it. The camera reports the battery as being "fully rechargeable", or whatever.
Just finished reading the manual--Wow!
With the money I saved, I went ahead an bought a Zeikos grip (works great!), a 32gb 400x CF card (Transend), and a UDMA reader from Lexar. Let the fun begin.
Also FWIW, I bought this because my venerable 40D has 90,000 clicks and folks are starting to pay me for may services. That 40D will be a great backup or second camera for an assistant.

Exactly my approach too! Congrats.

FedEx finally came and I just opened the box like a kid on Christmas morning. The body looks great, no signs of wear anywhere.

I wanted to test it out for a week before I decided whether or not I would like it more than my T2i. I'll see how operation goes after the battery fully charges and when I'm done reading the manual.

I do have ONE question as of now. To all the 7D owners, can you guys hear the mirror "popping" when you press the START/STOP button? Is this normal?

Congrats.

When you turn on/off Live View or Video, yes, you can hear the mirror flipping up/down.

Thanks! I was a little worried, but my mind is at ease now!

Looks like there are a few of us that received 7Ds today. Mine was overnighted to me as promised. Noticed that there was no "Refurbished" sticker at bottom of camera as I've read throughout the related threads. And like everyone else it appears mint - even smells mint :lol:

a few pics for the curious (iPhone):

Great day wasn't it? Lol. Mine came with firmware 1.2.2. I had to upgrade. Just giving you the heads up if your 7d didn't get flashed before it was shipped.

Yes fun day. Firmware 1.2.3

Question on shutter count. There really is no reliable way to know with a refurbished 7D right? I understand the software won't determine count? Plus the shutter count under battery info window resets if the battery is replaced?

Mine had a small gold "refurbished" sticker on the very bottom but it peeled off without leaving any residue to anything...and I just finished updating to firmware 1.2.3 (mine had 1.2.1).
