Also related, i was in a cam shop to pick up the eos m, and the camera guy had a ball telling me that "canon is bringing out a lot of stuff later this year" Of course nothing specific, but that does coincide with the current M firesale, even mentioned by this latest post.

Yeah, those salespeople in camera shops...they have all the inside information, direct from Canon HQ.   ::)

With the proper precision matte focusing screen and manual focusing the whole thing is one giant AF point.

All that they need to do is read canonrumors 'cause everyone knows we get it direct from Canon HQ!

I'm still not getting how the 7D was lacking and the T2i is better  :o

Did I miss a post?

I also don't know but my guess is that T2i is better at handling higher ISOs than 7D which is true especially when shooting JPEGs.

Well, clearly the 7D just isn't cool.  Consider...7D...T2i.  A number and a letter vs. a letter and a number with an 'i'.  Think iPhone, iPad, iMac, iPod...and not just Apple - an iRobot vacuums my house for me, iSpy was an awesome TV show (who doesn't like Robert Culp, and yes I took a contractional liberty there), but you get my point.  Without the i, the 7D is just...lacking.

...Put your money into better lights instead. DonĀ“t just stop because there seems to be a problem, work around it.

good luck!

Does this mean my 5D mkii is cool ? What happens if it is referred to as a 5D mk2 or 5D mkII ?

It could explain why the 5D mkiii is 50% cooler than the mkii.   ;D

Only 50% cooler? Seems low . . .
