replaced it with a 1DIV. Pretty nice update on focus and high ISO. But only when I go back the the previous album did I find how many great photos I took with a 7D. That's a very very capable camera.

Well I would definitely not replace my 7D with a 70D! Just came back from taking a solid look at the new 70 D. The new electronics are impressive but the camera itself comes across in your hands as a piece of light, fragile plastic with an inferior grip,  small feel and overall just not anything close to the higher class 7D. The format for the buttons etc. seems compromised due to the smaller size of the camera. When will Canon realize that many D7 users are frustrated that they have not provided an equivalent update for the 7D. It would be just great if they put out the new camera with a full frame sensor that is below the price point of the 5DIII. Wondering if I should just jump to NIkon! Difficult to wait another year to only be let down again! :(

Read the attached article, giving the statistics for the best photographs used by Reuters last year:

http://petapixel.com/2012/12/02/the-most-popular-cameras-and-settings-for-reuters-best-photos-of-the-year-2012/

These images are shot by the best photographers out there. In excess of 80% were shot using Canon bodies (and of course lenses). I doubt all of them are mislead by false commercials ...

According to these statistics: The worlds best pictures are shot using 1DIV, with the 16-35mm f2.8L II lens. How come only a mere 5% of these photographers shoot with Nikon, if they are that superior??
5DIII, 1DX, 8-15/4L, 16-35 f4L IS, 24-70/2.8L II, 70-200/2.8L IS II, 70-300/4-5.6L IS, 200-400/4L IS 1.4x, Zeiss 15/2.8, 17/4L TS-E, Zeiss 21/2.8, 24/3.5L TS-E II, Zeiss 35/1.4, Zeiss Otus 55/1.4, Zeiss Otus 85/1.4, 100/2.8L IS Macro, Zeiss 135/2, 600/4L IS II

I can agree with this.  The 70D doesn't seem like a big enough leap to warrant spending that much money on that much of an upgrade.  Now the 7D2....we'll see.
Canon 6D, Meike battery grip, Black Rapid Strap
EF 40mm f/2.8, EF 50mm f/1.4, EF 135mm f/2L USM, EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM, 430EX II Speedlite
HDR photos look best when I can't see them.

It is also interesting to note that over twice as many of the pictures were shot with the 5D2 over the 5D3..... You don't always need the newest...
The best camera is the one in your hands
