If you want a good camera for $1400, get a used 1Ds Mark II. It's IQ is way better than the 7D.
Wow, the price has really dropped. Its a very good deal at that price, you do have to have a 32bit XP computer with a firewire card and cable for some of the settings. That can be a pain if you have a 64 bit PC.
Oh really? I didn't know all that.
