Why ridiculous? When people complain bad 50mm F/1.4 and 24-70mm L, many people still enjoy their 50mm F/1.4 and 24-70mm L. 10% of people got bad copies will make BIG BIG noise. That will make you feel most of those lenses are bad. My 24-70mm is soft, but two of my friends' 24-70mm are very sharp.
Now you can see many Canon users want high MP cameras after Canon is testing the high MP camera or I should say after Nikon release 36MP camera.
Everyone is different. They have different needs. Sometimes people keep silent doesn't meant they agree or disagree. Dose that make sense?
it's ridicolous because are the same people that complained about the bump in mpix that now area complaing about too few mpix.
in the past the word was that 12mpix is enough but now 22mpix stinks..lol.
anyway i was thinking about change the 50D with another camera mainly to improve the AF performance and i am undecided between 1dmk3 and 7D (shooted some sport and airshow recently)... can you give me some advice
