Hello all I have been wondering as of late that everyone seems to be on the full frame band wagon, I see the benefit to them but for wildlife crop is still better, I am wondering is canon going to make a new better crop camera to replace the 7D and 1Dmk4 as there seems to be a big hole in the market right now.

It seems odd that that canon does not have a camera that can focus at F8 I was thinking this probably wont last long as they just redesigned there 2x extender I am sure that cost them a bit in R@D and doubt they would do that if they where not going to have a camera that would work with it in the future.

On another note with regard to image processors do they help lower noise in raw files or does that only apply to jpegs when canon says the  DIGIC 5+ has 20% lower noise ect.

I am pretty sure canon made a nice profit on the 7D its Price to performance ratio is very high though it could use an update in the noise department.

I can do that with my K5...........

Thanks guys I took some shots today an they came out better, I did some quick tests with the af and I think its right.

I think my big problem is just camera shake my tripod head is crap, when I upped the shutter to 1/2000 it got sharper. You can see full size version at my flicker page

I still think my K5 is sharper but we will see as I take more with this combo.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / ISO levels

Since getting my 7d I have noticed it has more iso steps them my K5, with the K5 is 100,200,400 and so on but the 7d has far more levels. I have seen a lot of people say don't use the half stops why is this? does using the odd numbers increase noise?

I had my Pentax K5 and 300mm f4 fall off my car on to pavement worked fine, then I tripped and fell into a pond and it still works.

I have not knocked my 7D around yet touch wood lol.

thanks I have some kinda sharp images but I am not sure if they could be sharper, my K5 just seems sharper.
I will look into focus adjustments.

I didn't use a cable I don't have one.

Here is another one I took today does it seem sharp?

HI guys I picked up a 7D and a 400mm 5.6 but I am having trouble getting sharp images. I also have a Pentax K5 and have no problems getting tact sharp with that.

for example here is a bird pic I took today I over exposed it because I was told to with the 7d to fix noise and such.  I croped it a bit to lower the image size.

the settings I used was ISO320, 400mm, f5.6, 1/250 and I was using a tripod.!1314

Lenses / Buying a used canon 500 F4

Hello everyone I am in talks with a guy to buy a 500 f4 I would trade it for my 400 5.6 + cash for $3900 he says its in perfect condition and comes with everything. Is this a good deal?

What should I look for when checking the lens?
