Yes guys, the complaints may not get a person anywhere but allows the stress to be vented and sometimes allows others to form opinions of not only the products but all that surrounds it (ie servicing, repairs, customer care and so on)....and I can fully understand where they are coming from..

Here in Europe, when it not only comes to electronic products but software it feels as though we are propping up other markets (and yes this may be down to governments/taxes etc)...but it also comes across as a little contempt to the customer base outside of the asia/america continents from the manufacturers (whoever they me be!!!!!)

So yes, lets receive comments (whether negative or positive) but do not deride someone for their comments due to having possible bad service/products (just monitor, ask for further clarification or ignore and tlet the person get it off their chest)

I felt this way... so I sold all of my Canon gear and bought a D600.  I couldn't be happier withh the photos I'm getting for the price I paid.

Don't just complain about it.  If you really feel this way then votemwith your dollars!

Does your D600 have the dust/oil problem that so many are noticing and/or complaining about?  (The price has dropped so low that I'm half considering one - not to replace but to supplement my Canon equipment.  But I really don't want to have to deal with the dust/oil problem that may be explaining the low price.)

It does get dustier than my Canon bodies.... but a quick blow with a Giottos Rocket Air gets the stuff off.  The dust accumulation is definitely slowing down over time as well.

I gotta say that it's worth the hassle for the upgrade in IQ... but I totally understand the hesitation over this issue.

If you are on the fence, I recommend renting one with a 24-70 from lensrentals.com.  That's what I did and I sold my 7D and lenses the very next week...

Same here. Used D700 for about 6 months. Love its fast AF and low light capabilities. However, I found myself did too much of post-processing to get to the look I like. Hence, sold it.

................ That's what I did and I sold my 7D and lenses the very next week...

It's hardly a surprise that the 7d has been out classed by newer models, the improvement in iq in the latest models has been significant be they canon or nikon.

But my 7d gave years of good service, just because better stuff came out won't stop it taking good shots.

I've been lucky enough to be able to move up to ff. It seems to me that the 7d is ready for upgrade, but hey that's inevitable at some point.
If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.

I think they're giving just enough time between the 7D and the 7D Mark II to be able to classify it as a "Legend!"  7D has been a great camera!  ;D  I'll be sad to see it go!   :'(
