It's worth $700? Really? Holy S___ are you a spoiled brat. But anyways, it's almost a 4 year old camera... get over it. 4 years ago when it was competing vs the nikon D300s, it blew the d300s out of the water in image iQ and features... ISO... depending on what your shooting, how much post processing you are doing and what not, it is what it is, it's a 18MP sensor (did i mention almost 4 year old sensor at that) on a crop style sensor. I've used it professionally for almost 3 solid years until I got my 5d3 none of my clients ever complained about noise... Yeah if you blow up the ISO 100 file at 100% which is like an 11x16 inch file at 300 dpi, you can find noise if you look for it hard enough... I can guarantee it doesn't print... With this camera I've shot trade show murals that were enlarged to 6 feet tall by 16 feet wide... No noise... not going to happen. Heck, take the 5d3 and 1dx... if you really wanted to find it, you can find noise in the raw ISO 100's in the shadows if you really had a hair up your butt. It is what it is. Above iso 1000, it gets dicey, but still, it was leaps and bounds above the 30D, 40D, and 50D at that point in time in my opinion, which, upon their debut STILL was $1000 cameras... Raw buffer... ehhh... I cant recall a time where I maxed it out, even when shooting cars in motion and flying jets... but then again i'm not a spray and pray shooting 30 continuous shot photographer.. Dont know what to tell you but get faster cards. AF i couldn't make out what your gripe was with your accent... something about a black thing?? Please elaborate. AF, at that time was the best in it's class, even compared to nikons cameras, and the 1dx and 5d3's AF were modeled off that system and technology... AF is tricky to learn but if you post exactly whats going on, we can help. Video... ehhh... I wasn't a big fan on the 7d with video because of the bad rolling shutter... I recall threads on ways to fix it or minimize it on some blog way back then... it hasn't been a problem for me so I didn't pay too much attention to be honest... but if you google it, maybe you'll find it. 2 card slots? Yeah we're spoiled now... Up to that point, the only camera that had 2 card slots were the 1 series cameras... now the 5d3 has it, but still (isn't a big deal)... It is what it is man... it's a 4 year old camera that is due to be replaced soon... While I would assume the buffer, maybe the card slots and maybe the moire in the video would be addressed, I wouldn't hold your breath on the noise... it's the nature of the beast.
p.s. rotating set button... cant say i've ever looked at the set button rotate and i'm usually shooting with my eye in the viewfinder, you know, taking pictures....
