DXO has zero credibility when it comes to rating cameras. They just don't get it.

You get an idea of how big a polar bears head is.Yes, that might be the largest I've seen, and I've seen several.
Sigh... typical.While its not a issue for us do to the NR setting, I do look to see how many exposures are remaining on my card. I change the card when there are too few left to be able to get thru the next few minutes without having the card run out and missing a critical shot.
Tell ya what.... I don't look at the gosh-darn number in the display.
Instead, I try to know the nature of the beat (the camera), as if it were an extension of me.
In that manner of familiarity, I just know I'm going to get a lot, or just a few frames, depending on how things were set.
I don't have a 7D, but I have had a 350D and 400D, and a 5DmkII... each has their own unique personality.
I may be geting a 7D soon... have not decided yet on which to get. So, its nice to know there is an "issue", but its not a deal breaker for me. Every camera has issues.....
Says Order Processed: Ready for UPS 10/11/2012 at around 11p.It sounds like UPS issue. B&H loads them into a empty trailer which UPS picks up every 2-4 hours. Apparently, UPS either missed picking up the trailer or left it sitting for a day.
Origin Scan around 7:30p today.
Departure Scan around 8:45p today.
Well, I'm glad to know where it is but hugely disappointed in having to wait all day because of what B&H told me. They'll definitely be hearing from me on Sunday.
Well, tracking has finally updated! Lens is still in New York! The only conclusion I can come up with is that B&H didn't get the package out yesterday and lied to me today about it being sent out! I asked them if it was sent yesterday, twice, and both times they said it was! Very disappointing...What pickup time does it say on the tracking page? B&H can put it out for UPS, but, until the UPS truck gets back to the terminal, unloads, and scans packages, the time might not be set. If the UPS truck breaks down or gets delayed, that can happen.
The 7D is worthless unless you are shooting in good light - Once you go full frame all this crap about "greater reach" is nonsense, thats like digital zoom. The 7D is sadly short speced in the most important part of the camera - its sensor. How canon could put a rebel sensor in a camera and sell it for twice the price beats me.The 7D came first, three years ago. The rebels use the 7D sensor. For a APS-C sensor, there are no big breakthrus in technology.
This is invaluable - thanks Mt. Spokane (hope your hands are doing better)I'm doing fine. I'm having both hands done for carpal tunnel. I have been unable to hold my heavy photo equipment, and the pain has been growing worse.
