This is the same 'ole "My item is better than your item" for this blah, blah, blah, reason.
The 7D is one hell of an amazing camera, as is the 5D2/3. I LOVE my 7D and my 5D2. Each camera body offers something that the other cannot. OK, answer me this, I hear 5D2 (or 6D) this... and 5D3 that... so why hasn't anyone here suggest the 1DX??? (Isn't it superior to the 7D???)
Oh, that's right, the PRICE RANGE (close to what 7 grand for the 1DX? ouch) ... duh, I forgot about that. At about $1400.00 (give or take a few bucks) right now the 7D is an amazing value for what it gives you. The images it takes are amazing and very crisp. The camera is blazing fast (for the money) and I couldn't be happier with it. Do I own a 5D3? No, and I prolly won't for the price (right now). I have friends who use it and it offers the same thing the 5D2 offers. It just does it a little faster. (Yes, yes and a few more features, oh...like those found in the 7D!)
I will keep my 5D2 and 7D.
Readers... do yourself a favor. Buy what you can AFFORD for the FEATURES/SPEED you want (and more importantly need) and learn your equipment well. Look, I can go back to images I caught with my Rebel XTi and they are fantastic!!! I mean that, they are super shots! Sad to say that money is a limiting factor to our purchases, but then again, that is the PRIMARY reason why Canon offers so many cameras for us to choose from. There is simply no ONE camera for everyone.
This is kind of like someone suggesting that everyone should drive a Corvette and anything less is crap. Give me a break...
