EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon EOS 7D Firmware 2.0.5 Now Available

Firmware Version 2.0.5 is for cameras with firmware version 2.0.3. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 2.0.5, it is not necessary to update the firmware. Once the camera is updated to version 2.0.5, it cannot be restored to a previous firmware version.

Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out.

er sure it was funny at the time hehe ;)

G-V I guess you hit the nail.
After taking on board what has been said here is what I have decided.
The 70-200 has been offered to me for £900, which I didn't have.
I have sold a 70-300 IS (non L), a Sigma 17-70 OS HSM (mki), I am going to also sell the 17-55 because it will generate the balance of my needs. After purchasing the 70-200 I will sell the 50mm 1.4 and then replace the 17-55.
In photography I guess Macro is probably actually my first love, it's something I do at least 3 or 4 times a week.
I very rarely use the 50mm, it seems to get used out of guilt hehe.
I thank you all for replying as it has helped me to decide that I do need the 17-55, and along with the 100L and the 70-200 2.8 I would have a complimentary range of lenses.

Hi everyone
I currently own a 7D, and have a 50mm 1.4 canon
                                                17-55mm 2.8IS
                                                100mm Macro L
I have an opportunity to purchase a 70-200 2.8 mkii but will have to sell either the 17-55 or the 100L.
So what I am basically asking is would you sell a 17-55 to be left with the 100L, 50 1.4 and a 70-200 mkii ?
Macro is my 2nd love !

Hi Omar
I had one the ebay specials on my old 60d for 16 months, with absolutely no problems.
I had one on my even older 500d, that was for 2 years,
I sold it and the 500d no problems, and non for the new owner either ( a friend).
I have a 7d now with a battery grip from ebay - no problems thus far ! (fingers crossed).
